BETA PHOTO: Kill Phil is in the middle of the photo.


Climb a techy face below the roof. It felt a little contrived to stay on the true line that is bolted, and it's a lot easier to use the well chalked holds on Sing It In Russian's start then step right to a "tooth" shaped hold next to the second bolt of Kill Phil. Climb to the roof and clip a leaver biner on the third bolt just over the lip. I tried clipping my own draw here, but it put the rope in an awkward position at the lip of the roof, so either clip the leaver biner (if it's still there) or put a longish draw on it. Make some cool moves over the roof and into the corner above that has beautiful gray stone. Under the upper roof, make committing, hard moves left to the finish on Sing It In Russian. The moves left were really hard and felt like the crux of the route. This route felt kind of "traddy" and doesn't get done much, but it has some redeeming characteristics.


It is in between Sing It In Russian and Philthy, sharing the same start as Sing It In Russian or just right of it.


6 bolts plus the 2 bolts (that usually have draws) at the top of Sing It In Russian.

Pretty fun if you've done everything else on the wall. I climbed this route on the direct, bolted line and thought the sequence was cool. Overall, I'd call this route a footwork test piece, something you don't find as much in Rifle.
