Description

Like most routes in Rifle, Noble Wife climbs much better than it looks.

Do the semi-difficult start of Call The Cops, then with a ledge looming below, make a hard, committing move to establish in the steep, blocky corner. Continue making awkward, strenuous, and off-balance moves until the angle eases off, and the climbing becomes more subtle, and technical.

It is a great route for anyone looking for something with a traditional feel.

Location

This is left of Call The Cops.

Protection

Lot of quickdraws. The anchors have carabiners. A 60 meter rope will get you to the ground from the anchors.

Thanks to the efforts of Michael Benge, this route is equipped with shiny new permadraws as of today. So, go do it! It's really good! Aug 11, 2014
