Comments: Yes, there are a few USFS campgrounds close by. Twin Peaks and Parry Peak are east of Monitor and within a few miles.

Comments: The remaining old bolts (first perma-drawed bolt and last bolt) on Pinch Fest (other than the useless, low first bolt) were replaced with ClimbTech glue-in WaveBolts provided by the ASCA.

The other bolts were replaced a few years ago with stainless 5 pieces.

Enjoy!

The crux bolt was replaced a few years ago with a stainless 5 piece. The old holes were reused except for the last bolt which was spinning and nothing I had could get it to come out.

Enjoy!

Comments: I don't know who added the new first bolt on this but it wasn't me. It was added last year.

Comments: 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.

Comments: Almost all of the old bolts on this have now been replaced with glue-in hardware from the ASCA. One original bolt toward the top remains. Enjoy.

Comments: Fitz is talking about Feline in Rifle. Leo, I can PM you later today with an idea I had about cleaning up that area and making the directions to Feline, and other climbs in that vicinity, a lot better. Cheers.


Location: CO : Rifle : Rifle Mountain Park : The Sno-Cone Cave : Brenna (5.11a)
By: Michael Schneiter When: Jul 11, 2014

Comments: There isn't a new line to the right of Brenna but instead a variation called Air Patrol. You start on Brenna and go right after the first bolt and joining Stirring of Air, thus avoiding Stirring's wicked hard and isolated crux. Makes for a nice 10a.

I'll check out the anchor on Brenna next time I'm out there.

Comments: Unless I'm blind, I'm pretty sure the first two routes on the left, No Exit and Exit Strategy, share an anchor. I couldn't find a separate anchor no matter how hard I looked. Hence, the 2008 guidebook and the description here are inaccurate. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Comments: The NoName numbering system was started when people first started posting stuff here, but their usefulness has worn off. I agree with getting rid of those NoName numbers, or keeping them in parentheses because there are some beta photos with the numbering system I believe. Part of the confusion may be that the Lower Wall has an upper tier, so when doing a L to R ordering, it makes it a little tricky because there are climbs on top of other climbs. The organization I've got on the page for the Lo... more >>

Comments: Proper left to right for routes on the Poison Ivy Wall:

The Itch
Sumac
Kor Line
Twin Cracks
The Sickle
Lightning Bolt Cracks
Afro Samurai
Obscurity 5.11 (which really isn't on the Poison Ivy Wall and deserves its own area)

Comments: In the 2008 Western Slope guidebook, this is named Poison Ivy and the variation that continues up and right is called Ivy league.

Comments: I don't know who put the bolts in, next to a perfect crack, but I know it dates back at least 10 years. My wife climbed it with her brother in 2004 or 2005 and I remember seeing the bolts while climbing in the area prior to 2004.

Comments: Probably not appropriate to claim FAs on the easier lines on the boulders. First bolted ascent, maybe, but not a true FA. People have climbed here for a long time, and there were existing anchors on many of these lines. I personally free soloed the easier lines many times, and I'm sure I wasn't the first. Plus, the route Bert follows a crack that is easily protected.

Comments: If traveling from the south (from Gateway or the Unaweep granite), it is 3 miles from the Cactus Park turnoff to the parking lot for the Petrified Wall. Parking lot will be on your left when going down the hill.

Comments: Maybe an admin can update the info in the description: The day pass at Rifle is $5 per car. You can get season passes, which are a great deal, from the campground host/park ranger or at the City of Rifle Parks Department in town.

The camping fee is increasing to $10 this year.
