Description

15 feet to the right of Spuds in Space. It starts at the top of the hill. Excellent route that requires some good footwork. Challenging for a 5.9 leader (me) but not overly so. A little polished but not as much as Spuds. The crux comes about 1/2 way up working on some crimpy holds while above your last bolt.

Protection

8 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

First route ever in Rifle Park, so was very pleased to find so many great features for a 5.9ish route (for a slab climber). The crux can almost be missed by a taller person. Great route and not too greasy compared to other counterparts in the park. Jun 2, 2004
