Tired of the overcrowded and polished Ruckman Cave? Head on over to the Anti-Phil wall for the less well-known short power route, Sing It In Russian. I personally think it's better than comparable 12b short Rifle routes such as Street Knowledge, Pinch Fest, or Right El Sapper.
Great rock with no polish, a little power and a little technical skill will get you to the top. You can rest on a kneebar right before the crux. It's comfortable so no kneepad is necessary. The crux is a bit reachy but I've seen 5'6" climbers send.
Go left from Easy Skankin' over the dirt mound and Sing It is the first route you come to.

Hard for 12b - this line would get 12+ in Boulder Canyon. Be prepared for a full smorgasbord of reachy, powerful, technical Rifle climbing. Mysteriously not too popular, although the climbing and stone are excellent.
