Description 

This is a nice gymnastic route on quality rock that is steeper than the other 5.11s in this sector. Long pulls on edges, slopers and pockets with a bit of strenuous footwork characterize the climbing. The FA suspected there was an "obligatory dyno," but, this being Rifle, a big drop-knee was found that allowed the "dyno" to be done statically.


Location 

It is left of No Risk No Fin.


Protection 

Approximately 9 bolts to anchor chains that have steel biners.

Really fun and worth doing. This took me the same number of tries as Fistful of Dollars but felt a bit harder. The more on the bolt line at the top, the harder the grade. If you bail all the way right to No Risk No Fin, it is definitely easier. The long deadpoint right is cool, though some people find it a little heady. The undercling above is one of my new favorite holds in the canyon. Thanks to Dave for the work on this one.
