Description

Silent Swells is a great addition to this (currently) quiet area in Rifle. The first crux hits at about the second bolt, where one must choose whether to use powerful underclings and a kneebar along the bolt line or a crimpy alternative a few feet to the right. Get a quick shake midway, then enter the fun, engaging, upper, crimpy crux. Once you hit the undercling near the last few bolts, take a breath, smile, and cruise up the easier terrain to the chains.

Location

This route sits just to the right of Fat Tongue.

Per Stephen Felker: this route is third from the right.

Protection
