Description

This was Rifle's first sport route for a reason -- it follows a compelling line on a brilliant wall and starts on a streaked limestone pillar reminscent of the finest stone in Europe.

It is the 8th route from the left in the Wasteland, sitting just between Vision Thing to the left and The Beast to the right. Think of it as the leftmost route on the grey, central section of the wall.

Start on the pillar and climb up to a bolt high and right. Bust to a horizontal slot, clip, then climb past a bouldery crux to an overwhelmingly sharp finger lock. Sustained climbing up the brilliant blue/grey stone leads to cold-shut anchors under the roof.

Protection

Seven quickdraws -- five for the route and two for the anchor.
