Directly above the Visor is a small wall sheltered from the wind with 4 routes on it. This one shoots straight up the center of the steep and flat, west-facing wall to the left of the obvious, large crack/chimney/ramp thing. Quite thin and bouldery, it will test your ability to crimp down hard on small but positive edges. It is a little taste of Smith Rock out here on the Front Range....


4 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor, so bring 6 'draws and call it good.

A great bouldery route with 4 bolts along the way. The route is very straight forward, if the holds are not chalked just think of how a crimpy route would be set in the gym, and you will find the holds, with some reachy moves for shorter (under 5'7") folks. A decent route, I would give it 2 stars. Worth doing. Sep 18, 2001
11d - go to Rifle and see what 12b is really like. Chipped and obvious. Left, right, left, right. Oct 8, 2002
Jim, the beta is actually Right, Left, Right, Left, Right, Left, Right, Left. Oct 11, 2002
A fun route whatever the grade! A little sharp in places though. Feb 26, 2004

Chipped. Hard to onsight. Grade seems height/reach related, unless you're Jimmy. Best route on the crag, which is obviously a low bar. Jul 8, 2013

I love how all strong climbers compare everything to Rifle. Which is kinda bs because Rifle is known for being funky, sandbagged, hard to read sequences and being just plain weird. Remember you're climbing in Boulder Canyon, home of soft, straightforward climbing. It seems stupid to compare the two. Maybe we should compare all of BC to The Gunks, in that case this route is only 5.10. Sep 16, 2013
