|Rough Rider Wall
|Portions of the approach and cliffs of this area are on private land. MORE INFO >>>|
Pull an easy start into a lower angle dihedral. Next make very awkward moves to leave the dihedral and get established onto the face. A very difficult clip is encountered here. Continue up on sustained rock with good movement passing the approach rap anchors to your right. (If you've had enough it would be easy to bail here). If you choose to continue head up passing another crux with some more difficult clips to the anchors.
Expect to be making hard clips and hard moves well above your last bolt. In some cases the bolts are just out of reach from nice jugs so if working this route, some long slings should make the clips flow better.
Furthest right route on Rough Rider wall. To the left is Cold Fusion.

The bolting is a bit odd but the solid, interesting rock more than makes up for it.
Less sustained than many of the other routes, such as Rough Rider.

only reason i give it a star is because of the solid clean rock. The movement is fairly lame and undefined. This route is like the stale, smaller, deformed end piece of the bread loaf. Still edible, but why bother when you have 19 other perfectly toasted big pieces from the middle to enjoy.
