BGC has an interesting history. It was first scoped out while strong climbers were working nearby testpiece, The Crew, and looked over left to the line of holds in the ever steep section of The Wicked Cave. Joe Kinder bolted and cleaned the line, with some help from Matty Hong and Jon Cardwell. Several strong climbers worked the route, including Joe. Eventually Kinder left CO for extended travels abroad, so he declared the line an open project. Matty Hong finally sent the route in 2011, giving it a grade of 5.14+, which at the time was the hardest route in Rifle. It still is up there as one of the best, and hardest routes in Rifle and Colorado.
