All climbs are on the east side of the the canyon.
That means a.m. shade with p.m. sun.

Summer: Shade until early afternoon.
Fall: Like Summer, but not as hot.

There is now a Porta-potty at the Feline parking lot. Thank You, City of Rifle!

Getting There

Drive into RMP and locate the Koper's/ Ice Caves trail/ Wasteland parking lot on the left, just past the small bridge.
Continue for 0.3 mile to the Feline parking lot on the left at the bend in the road.
There is room for about 8 cars here.
Please park head in only.

CAUTION: Cars sometime speed up and down this section of the Canyon!

Access:
There are two sections to this area.

This trail meets the wall at the climb Sheehan.
