Starting the crux of Waiting For 21.

Waiting For 21 is a great new addition to Rifle, and climbs very similar to Beer Run. Waiting For 21 is a long and exposed techy route.

Waiting For 21 starts on Beer Run and goes through the first crux of Beer Run. The route then moves out right on a very techy, crimpy, blue limestone face. The crux involves a high, left foot to gain a bad crimp, then going to a positive, left, side pull. After the redpoint crux the climb is not over, maybe 12b or 12c to the top on bullet limestone.



15 draws, bring a few extra to extend a few to help with clips and rope drag. A 60 Meter rope just barely gets you down, so make sure your 60m is not cut or use a 70m.

Thin, reachy boulder-problem crux. Conditions dependent (if it's raining, even misting, odds are good you won't be sending). Awesome, exposed position.
