Like most routes in Rifle, Noble Wife climbs much better than it looks.
Do the semi-difficult start of Call The Cops, then with a ledge looming below, making a hard, committing move to establish in the steep, blocky corner. Continue making awkward, strenuous, and off-balance moves until the angle eases off, and the climbing becomes more subtle, and technical.
Great route for anyone looking for something with a traditional feel.
Left of Call The Cops.
Lot of quickdraws. The anchors have carabiners. A 60 meter rope will get you to the ground from the anchors.
