Description

James Brown is the left of two parallel lines 50 feet or so right 80 feet of Meat. This is another fine line on largely good stone; however, like may routes on this wall, the rock can kick up suspicious chunks that are are a bit off-putting on the sharp end (Personally, I also thought it was spacey getting to the first clip - others may disagree). Lots of crimping on a nearly dead vertical wall with very high continuity generates a largely excellent line. James Brown also gets a bit spacey in the middle, the difficulty does back down here for a short way, however, compared to Sex Machine, James seemed to demand more mind control - pretty cool until the pump starts to set in.

Protection

Eight to ten (Eds. now 11) draws and a rope.

Per Jeremy H: it was re-bolted, but they found that a couple of the original bolts were in hollow rock. They had to make a choice to make the run outs way longer or to add more bolts. We are only allowed to climb in the canyon because the town of Rifle allows it. If someone got hurt because it was re-bolted in a dangerous way, it could jeopardize climbing in the canyon for everyone.
