Touchdown was as skinny as me. WI6 madness.
This formation is big enough to support more than one lead line with the easiest being WI5 (today) and the hardest being WI5+. I'm sure there are years 5+ is the easiest line and a WI6 line exists. The top, like most of Rifle's ice climbs, is dirty and the ice can start falling apart. Very comforting to finally get into the rappel anchor. I do love being able to stage for lead right at the car. More incredible Rifle ice. : )
0.6 miles into the canyon. 3 minute approach from the road.
Screws for lead. Fixed rappel anchors around large tree.
