Crisp laybacks lead to a crux before more laybacks lead you to the chains.

Michael and Rachel McGee have contributed a lot of lines to Rifle. I think this might be their best.


This is on the Feline side of the Ice Caves about 40 yards to the left of Rachel's Route.


14 bolts to fixed anchors with lowering biners.

Anyone know what the route left of Dirty White Boy is? It is really good and felt about 10d or 11a. Imagine it is another McGee creation. Excellent work on it. Oct 2, 2016
This was our favorite 5.10 we did on our weeklong trip to Rifle. Thanks for putting in all the hard work on these new routes, it can't be easy!!!!! Sep 24, 2016
It's useful to have four or five long draws to help straighten the rope line between the zig-zagging bolts. Also, for anyone who is not a confident 5.10 leader, it's good to be aware of a bolt in the crux that is kind of strenuous to clip, and the fall wouldn't be too pretty if you blew it with slack out. Good route, though. Sep 12, 2015

Fun and long. Great warm-up or tick in itself. Jun 29, 2015

This route is terrific. A great addition and now one of my favorite 10a's in the canyon. Thanks for all the work to put this up. Surprisingly clean, really well bolted, and just plain fun. Do it! Aug 31, 2014
