C4.

Description 

Jump up on the ledge from the left and gingerly move right under the first clip to start. A few smallish holds with good feet will launch you to bigger holds to C1. Even bigger holds through C3 await you. Jog right then left past C4 & 5 at the horizonal break and past the blocky crux bulge at C6 & C7. Cross left at around C8 over the mini-arete where some easier and then slightly harder climbing on good holds goes to the anchors.

Protection  

11 clips to anchors.

Dirty down low but a good climb. My students, some of whom have spent 2 days a week at Rifle all summer, described this as their favorite climb at Rifle yet. It does have some pretty darn fun jug hauling.

Really HIGH first bolt - bring the super mega long stick. A friend's regular stick did not reach. Great jug hauling.

Thanks so much for adding the lower bolt. This is a terrific route- fun from bottom to top. It even stays dry in moderate rain! I appreciate all the hard work that created Kubrick's.
