The crux is on the 3rd move. You undercling the top of the big jug and get a really high foot just to the left of the jug and crank up the the sidepull/undercling 4 feet above that. The rest of the route is 5.11-5.12. Its a one move wonder! This route is about 50-75 yards to the left of Feline.


It is possible to clip every draw on this route from the tree that runs right along behind the climb. There is no danger of hitting this tree from the route, but with a stick clip the rock is 5-6 feet from the rock. The rock is better on this climb than any other climb at Rifle!

Short by Rifle standards, but the rock is nice. Jan 5, 2007

13a? Maybe if you skip the good holds on the right... Mar 31, 2003
Glad to hear someone found some good rock at Rifle! Mar 28, 2003
Stevie Danboise did the F.A. on this one. As far as the best rock in the canyon, now that's debateable. Mar 27, 2003
