Description Suggest change

First Steps is now the easiest bolted route in Rifle. Low angle, well-protected climbing starts from the top of the platform and veers left to avoid a steep headwall. After going left, you end up in a groove feature where the angle increases just before the anchor.

Location Suggest change

This is just left of Supre Guide, at the top of the mound where a platform exists for belaying. It is best approached by walking on the road from the Ruckman and approaching from below. Also, it is easily approached from the campground.

Protection Suggest change

7 glue-in bolts and anchor.
