Taken during Rifle Climbers' Festival, 2013.


Start on steep, pocketed rock and climb sustained, wandering, and thoughtful climbing that requires balance and footwork. You'll find a series of pockets, cracks and features. The finish involves a mantle to a good stance.

The world is a better place when people act out of love, not hate.


This is the middle of the three routes that are located where the trail meets the wall.


9 bolts and anchor.

I thought this line was harder than Cut The Cord personally. Maybe it's easier for taller people.

Michael, you're not the only one to tell me that. Originally I thought this was easier than Cut the Cord. I'm probably wrong. Things clean up and better beta is found. I do think this could be a bit easier for tall people. So, is Cut the Cord easier than 10c or is this harder than 10b? Opinion? I'm happy to change the grades.

I changed the grade on this and Cut the Cord to reflect the feedback I heard and also I think my opinion started to change. But, chime in because community consensus seems to work best for grading routes. Enjoy.

Finally getting to these routes 3 years later. Really enjoyable moderates. So much better than the polished "classics." Thanks for the hard work.
