DescriptionI think this is a great route, and certainly one of the toughest for the grade at Rifle. Perhaps its only defect is that every clip seems to be a long stretch away, making it much easier to do the route once the draws are on (use long ones at that!).
Boulder up into an acute corner and clip a bolt, then move right to establish yourself on the face over the roof. Continuously crimpy moves define the next 30+ feet of climbing, which is capped by a powerful stretch right into the base of another dihedral. Move left at the top of the dihedral to finish.
This route has grey cold shuts on it. Now, what the hell is a "Philibuster?"
LocationThis climbs the very colorful blue/black/grey streaked wall right of Eurotrash, of which it is basically a slightly easier version.
