BETA PHOTO: The Wall of Life in Rifle Mountain Park. 1 - Cut t...


This is a new wall of moderate climbing that is close to the road but has a secluded, tucked-away kind of feel. The rock is featured with pockets and ribs. The routes are new, so expect some dust and freshness.

Getting There 

The wall is upstream and left of the Wasteland. Park at the Wasteland and go about 30 yards upcanyon/upstream from the left edge of the Wasteland (where Popular Demand and Community Service are). Look for a trail going through the willows and trees on your right. The trail puts you at the lowest part of the wall, where the first three routes have been established.

Start on steep, pocketed rock and climb sustained, wandering, and thoughtful climbing that requires balance and footwork. You'll find a series of pockets, cracks and features. The finish involves a mantle to a good stance. The world is a better place when people act out of love, not hate. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
