This is a nice addition, with great rock, and nice moves. Unfortunately, it's a one-move-wonder route with easy (10+) climbing down low and a wicked hard move to get over a roof near the chains.
Climb up to a ledge and follow the beautiful blue streak up a corner making interesting and meandering moves to a no hands shake below an intimidating roof. Pinch and lie back the rib feature in the roof, until you reach a shitty pinch. Then huck for a better hold over the roof, make a couple of more unusually pumpy moves, and attain 12c glory!
The route quality of Phil It is a little below average for Rifle. However, if this thing was in Boulder Canyon, people would be lining up to try it 24/7. So, if you are looking for an average Rifle route or a 5 star Boulder Canyon route Phil It up! If not, walk on by.
15 feet to the right of Philch.
Nine bolts. The anchor is fixed with chains and two carabiners.
