BETA PHOTO: The Enlightened Path (5.11c) climbs the face right...


Climb the vertical/slab through fun, pocketed limestone. It is different than most routes in Rifle. The route has a few great rests and a couple of cruxes.


This is the long slab just right of the corner.


14 bolts.

This and Exodus are two great climbs that will only get better with some traffic to help clean them up. Thanks for adding this great new zone to Rifle!
