Looking for AM Rifle climbing partners for the coming weeks and basically all summer.... Probably around 9 AM.
I could climb until 12 PM Mon, Fri, Sat.
I could climb until 3 PM Sun, Tues, Wed.
Thursdays all day!
Climb with me!!!!

Primarily a star chasing, gear plugger but can climb 5.12, perhaps pull moves on 12+ - but I never care enough to analyze it, I just climb good routes.

PEACE. May 13, 2016

No. It's a city owned park. Season passes can be purchased in town at city hall or with the campground host. Day passes are available at the entrance station. Jun 1, 2017
Is Rifle weather managable around mid-November? Nov 9, 2017

It is this year or at least currently. Just depends on the weather as the sun gets lower and the canyon stays cooler. Nov 10, 2017
