Comments: Anyone know who changed this route and why? My apologies in advance if it was the FA that put in the extra bolts or if there is a good reason I don't know about. But....

This climb was memorable, safe, and exciting before. I haven't done tons of routes at Rifle. However, this one in particular was unique and one I've always remembered because I had to try desperately hard with some air underneath. In fact, the only reason I went to this description was to get a little palm sweat going at work. ... more >>

Comments: The Vegas area has a massive surplus of houses....specifically shitty tract houses. If they didn't build a single house for a year, the inventory might return to normal levels. Totally unnecessary to build any more houses there, especially near red rocks. I'm disgusted just thinking about it.

Comments: The top of this one is a bit dicey. If not for the GREAT view at the top I would give it a bomb. A fun but chossy alternative if Rewritten is crowded. 5.8 R IMO.

Comments: A really fun and clean line. It would be more stimulating without the tick marks on every hand and foot hold after the crux.

Comments: V2-P (P is for PUCKER!) The high-ball section is easy climbing but still pretty heady.

Comments: A really great, unique pitch. I like the "face-out/chimney" move entering the crux.

Comments: Easily 4 stars if it was just a few bolts longer...great moves on perfect stone.

Comments: A total sandbag IMO.....balancy, sequential crux on tiny feet and direction-dependent hand holds. I could have missed some key beta or just be a wuss, but I'd give 'er a 10d redpoint or 11a onsight.

Comments: I noticed the Grandmother's Challenge anchor was passed by 1 vote. Does majority rule even if 49.99999% are against it? It seems like it should take more than that to me.

Comments: Isn't this the same route as Cozy Overhang? It seems like a double entry to me...but I could be wrong.

Comments: The comments on rock quality and the sustained nature of this route are spot on. This thing left me bruised and beaten. I trundled several loose rocks from the very top section. The large and somewhat secure chockstones at the exit are still pretty solid. I also needed bigger gear (#4 and #5 Camalot) because the back of the crack was very hard for me to reach.

Comments: I didn't think the runout between bolts was too bad. It would be an uncomfortable fall, but not a dangerous one. I found the suspect rock on P1 more spicy than anything else on the route.

Comments: The Tyrolean across the creek is in bad shape. Both ropes have exposed cores and the cores are about 50% deteriorated. It needs new rope.

Comments: I did this route today. Pretty fun...I'd agree with the previously mentioned rating of 5.10c for P1. Certainly no harder than 11a. The crux was balancy and awkward, but not too strenuous.
