This is a wonderful route and one of the longest, most sustained 5.11s on Rifle. There is a quartet of 5.11s on the very right margin of the Project Wall, this one being the third route from the [right] (and two routes right of Hang Em' High).

Rehabilitator climbs a very colorful, monolithic streaked face to a very faint, left-facing corner system and a high set of anchors. The route is pumpy yet positive right off the bat and stays continuously involved all the way to the top, with lots of opportunities to practice your Rifle sloping pinch technique on the upper half of the route.

Start off the ramp and step right onto the face, grabbing jugs and clipping a bolt. This route has been the scene of one bad accident when a climber got the rope behind her leg and hit the ramp with her head when she fell. Use caution getting to the third bolt.


12 quickdraws.

This truly is a great route...Not being a Rifle local, I've probably only done this route about 6 times, and its funny, sometimes it feels like a light on my feet cruise and somtimes I miss a hold or two and it feels harder than Vision Thing...anyway, it keeps you on your toes.

I think the description should read "third route from the right".

The first bolt was replaced with a glue-in provided by the ASCA. I believe the rest of the bolts, or the majority of them, were replaced a few years ago with stainless hardware. Enjoy.
