|The Winchester Cave
This is an atypically bouldery route for Rifle and has been called stout for the grade.
You can stick clip the first bolt to protect the opening moves, though they aren't super hard. Increasingly steep climbing on those big old Rifle pinches leads to a cryptic crux. More hard business awaits on the headwall above.
It is on the left periphery of the Winchester Cave proper, two routes left of the 7 P.M. Show (the central line up the blue streaks in the middle of the cave).

A Steve Damboise masterpiece! Every bit of .13c even by Rifle standards I would say.
