DescriptionAs Rifle's favorite warm-up, this elegant line now sports footholds the color of tarmac, only with much less traction. Nevertheless, it is an engaging, sustained line on a perfect vertical wall, tackling 80 feet of some of the most fun limestone climbing in Colorado. There is often a line for this route in the mornings, but if you're willing to come a bit later and climb it in the sun or toward evening you shouldn't have much trouble getting on.
80 Feet of Meat is the first route to your right at the top of the steps and climbs off the left side of a ledge onto the brown face above. Save some guns for the pumpy/funky moves in the exit groove -- it's harder than it looks.
It is a 25 meter pitch.
