Bloody Corner- Follows the crack between the red a...


Any 5.10 in Rifle that's not polished is 3 stars. The Bloody Corner is an excellent left leaning finger crack that would probably be a classic 5.9 at Eldo. The bolt spacing is quite spicy around the 4th or 5th bolt, so don't fall there. Cross the "bridge" for the Ruckman Cave and then hike left about 100 yards and you'll find a quiet isolated wall with 5 routes. Bloody Corner is right above a large 10' X 10' boulder and is the 3rd route from the left. Just right of "Bovine Impact".


6 bolts + anchors.

I thought this was harder than the 5.9s I've done in Eldo. At least to onsight. Would have rather lead it with gear actually. Didn't feel it was that runout...but for some Rifle bolting perhaps yes.

A person would probably be better off leading it with gear. The bolts set you up for an ugly fall the whole way. Still, I like the route.

"obviously a Colorado mentality"? Awwww c'mon man. Lumping everyone of any gender, race, location or otherwise is just not worth the hatin'. Come to the Denver Beer Night on Thursday and feel the love.

P.S.- You're right, comparing Rifle and Eldo are apples and hicamas!

I believe that Maurie and Phil put this up. Interesting route. Very different for Rifle.
