Description

This route is located between Problem Child and Wild Thing, and was formerly listed as the "Open Project." It climbs up a devious grey face for 40 feet, with a very cool fin feature in the middle, to a no hands rest at 2/3rds height. It then tackles a bouldery overhanging arete. Incredible movement and mostly quality rock make this one of the best hard sport climbs on the pass.

Matt Samet deserves credit for envisioning the line, and placing most of the bolts. Zack Smith also played a huge part in making this line a reality, with some diligent cleaning, moving/adding some bolts, and deciphering the bizarre crux sequences. After struggling on his first try, Tommy crushed the route second go. One of the best bits of redpoint climbing I've witnessed. Simply amazing! This route is worth a day away from Rifle!
