This an anomaly: a bouldery route at Rifle. If you're a thick-torsoed power junky and you're sick of pumping out at bolt 15 on the Project Wall, this micro, but engaging, rig provides plenty of entertainment.
This is the short, very overhanging route one route left of Vision Thing and finishes on the same ledge and at the same anchors as Ruckus.
Start on the Euro-pods of Vision Thing
and move left. Make an easy clip followed by a strenuous clip, then bust past slopers to good, deep huecos. Shake out here (or crawl up into the niche -- lame, lame), then bust the crux: hard moves up and left to an obvious spike.
Flounder and flop onto the ledge. Some call this route height-dependent.

short but fun

The easiest and certainly most fun way to gain the middle section of this "route" is to dyno from the sloper to the giant jug of a sidepull (from whence you can hang upside down by your foot to rest).
I think the route is a blast!
