DescriptionWow!! Arguably the steepest route in Rifle, this route suffers badly from seepage early in the season. After it dries, the route needs cleaning up for sure. Watch out for sand and spiderwebs.
Scramble up onto a polished ledge in the very back of the Skull Cave, and carefully climb to the first bolt which is about 20 feet off the ground. That is a bad place to fall. Move up and leftish for three bolts and then enter the horizontal world. It is very core intensive climbing. Powerful climbing brings you to the anchors. Kneepads are helpful.
