DescriptionThis route is on great stone with fun pocket pulling to get you warmed up through the first four bolts or so, where you reach a small ledge and the real climbing begins. Sustained, steepening rock culminates in a nice pump as you jog up some fun crimps, pinches, and sidepulls (don't dally in any one spot too long). The climbing up to a big jug rest below the looming roof is about 11d/12a. Now for the climax - an atypical boulder problem for Rifle: a slab, and an exciting one at that. Spot the footholds before you commit to the harrowing traverse up along the arete, and save some skin for the thin, sharp crimps getting to the anchor.
If you're boned up on your slab climbing, 12b might seem a little generous. If you've only been pumping laps in the Arsenal lately, the grade might seem sandbag as you struggle to pull yourself up on little nothings.
LocationThis is to the right of Crime and Punishment.
