Traversing in to avoid the poison ivy at the base ...


This climb take a little bushwhacking to get to but offers decent climbing on good rock. It is listed in the Rifle Mountain Park book as on of the obscurities on the Jumbled Buttress. It is listed at 5.10, but that might be a bit soft. When climbed in Fall 2010, the upper hand crack that isn't shown in the picture was really sandy.


You have to cut across the creek and scurry up to the base of the climb.


Medium gear.

I onsight this with Tyler, and I though it a tough climb. Granted styled the offwidth with sloper lieback not a beached whale thrutch past the crux.

Ha, you call sloper liebacking stylish.... Onsighted this today and no sloper liebacking. Good gear, great jams, would probly be my favorite route at No Name with some broom action and topping it out. So good, compared to my onsight attempt on Lone Pine yesterday, this was a cruise.

Continue for two more pitches above this pitch for a good little adventure, topping out the granite.

A word of warning: this climb is in rough shape currently, even by No Name Canyon standards. The base has a bunch of poison ivy although you can traverse into the first pitch from the left and avoid it. The first pitch is super dirty and much more so than I ever remember it being. The second pitch is even dirtier, and it appears that a large block may have come off the second pitch, offering an explanation for some of that filth. Needs some loving with a broom, or a whole army of brooms!

Also, I remember the second pitch being awkward and hard, but it may be more like 5.10 than 5.9, or at least 5.9+ (wink wink). Again, just a word of warning if you're looking for a "5.9" climb.
