|Rough Rider Wall
|Portions of the approach and cliffs of this area are on private land. MORE INFO >>>|
This is an amazing pitch requiring a 70M rope. Cool moves at two overhangs and thought provoking cruxes between them.
This is the leftmost route on the right side of the main face of Rough Rider Wall, just before the big ledge that breaks up the left end of the whole wall. A couple of routes left of the Riddler.

Three stars not four. Still a great climb. When that brick size hold comes off, which it will, the belayer better be paying attention. FA guy should remove it or glue it before someone gets hurt.

Loose hold was cleaned off the route by Dominic and Scott.

What's the deal with that micro-wave flake/block with 3 bolts in it? Is it bolted into the wall? I sure hope so.

it's about as bolted to a wall as any block could be.

A Safety note: "staying on route is key to not getting hurt, as rock fall is not uncommon on lesser-trafficked routes."

If it looks like crap don't pull on it. I say this knowing that folks expect new routes to be cleaned up to the point that no one will be killed or seriously hurt if rock does come off. If it is big (softball) and looks like it might come off take it off. I have made the mistake of thinking I might not be able to climb a route without the hold so I leave it.
Clean it make it safe. Oops, I will get off the pulpit now.

This route is fabulous -- one of my favorites on Rough Rider. Get on it!
I noticed no loose rock. There is a rock that has been reinforced with bolts, which while odd, seems solid.
After some delay the route has been named "One With Everything" by the first ascentionist, Scott Ayers. The name is an indication that this route has it all: delicate face climbing, two small roofs that are surmounted, and stemming in corners. It also references tranquility and pizza.
