Description

Set high off the road, the Nostril Cave is one of Rifle's smallest areas, containing two established routes and one unfinished project. Due to the cave's Northern orientation, this area never gets direct sunlight, making it a great place to climb in the Summer. The rock isn't perfect, but routes are extremely steep, fun, and beta-intensive. Plus the view is great.

Getting There

Located between Anti-Phil and the Bauhaus parking areas, the Nostril Cave is on the east side of the canyon, across the river, and just downstream of the Winchester Cave. A steep, faint trail through dense vegetation(nettles) will take you directly to the base of the cave.
