The Sanctuary is a new, small wall in Rifle. Right now there are only a few routes, but over the next few seasons there should be 10 or more. Fun climbing with a really long (2 minute) approach. Morning shade.
To get to The Sanctuary, park at the Wasteland and hike passed the Nappy Dugout towards PMT, PMS. Go over the hill, pass King Fisher and continue 100 feet to the wall.
