This route climbs an interesting line in between Cold Cuts and Crime and Punishment. A hard, early crux which could be done in multiple ways leads to easier but still-on-you climbing. It is an excellent warm-up after the initial crux. It feels harder than 80 Feet or Cold Cuts.

This was named for the first ascentionist's son.


This is between Cold Cuts and Crime and Punishment on the left side of the Meat Wall.


Currently it is equipped with draws.

Both comments here say 2nd try. Same here and for my partner... and several others I've talked to. No way it is the original 11b rating. Sure seems harder than 11c. Probably one of those weird routes that's hard to onsight but an easy redpoint. Thus, I thought 11d - tricky. Really enjoyed it. Thanks Jason!

I flashed this easily, but I would have to agree that an onsight would have made this feel harder, and I don't think I would have gotten the onsight. But isn't that the case with most routes in Rifle? Great addition to the Meat Wall. Thanks for your time putting it up, Jason.
