The Sapper Cave is the quiet, forested zone just up canyon from the Project Wall and includes the Sapper Cave itself and outlying routes on the vertical walls to the right and left. It is a good place to get back from the road a bit, and offers fair to classic routes in the 5.11 to 5.13 range.
Park at the Project Wall and walk 50 yards up canyon on the road, taking a climber's trail on the right. This trail deposits you directly under the very short Handy Boy (12b/c), a four-bolt boulder problem on the chossy right side of the cave.

Hand Me the Canteen, Boy 5.12d 7c 28 IX 28 E6 6b CO : Rifle Mountain Park : The Sapper Cave
Maybe the grade at this one has settled in around 12d -- I'm not sure and I don't think it matters. This is simply a splendid climb on some of the sweetest stone in the Canyon.Hand Me the Canteen Boy climbs out the middle of the Sapper Cave onto the slightly overhanging blue and pink headwall over the lip.
