All climbs are on the east side of the the canyon.
That means a.m. shade with p.m. sun.
Short easy to moderately hard routes.

Winter: Cold
Spring: Seeps, but will dry out some with sun.
Summer: Shade until mid afternoon.
Fall: Like Summer, but not as hot.

There is now a Porta-potty at the Feline parking lot. Thank You, City of Rifle!

Getting there 

Drive into RMP and locate the Koper's/ Ice Caves trail/ Wasteland parking lot on the left, just past the small bridge.
Continue for 0.3 mile to the Feline parking lot on the left at the bend in the road.
There is room for about 8 cars here.
Please park head in only.

CAUTION: Cars sometime speed up and down this section of the Canyon!


Park and hike upstream/up canyon for about 60 seconds and locate a somewhat hidden stone-stepped trail under some trees on your right.

Hike up the steps and wind through some boulders by a tree and then continue up wooden steps to a small cave at the base of the wall.
