Todd Graham on Fugitive, .13, mid-90s.

Private property with a public access easement and conservation easement allowing climbing held by the Access Fund. Critical to see current requirements and restrictions. MORE INFO >>>


This is a classic Jailhouse power endurance route and a popular first 13a for many people here. It incorporates a little bit of everything, from technical sequences to big power throws and a perplexing sloping layback finish.


Right side of jailhouse, 2 routes left of the large poison oak burn scar.


8 fixed rope or chain draws to fixed anchor chains.

Jailhouse Rock is the mother of invention to the sticky rubber kneepad. The early local developer's Tony Corliss stitched a rubber pad onto a pair of baseball pants in the early 1990's, and Tommy Herbert claims he was the first to glue sticky rubber onto a neoprene kneepad at the same time frame, which is what it commonplace today. Chris Knuth brought the neoprene pad to Rifle, where the device downgraded many established hard climbs in the mid 1990's.
