Being in the middle of the Colorado, It would be a packed weekend at Rile, Colorado, we managed to find a lot of 10s 11s and 12’s to try our hand at. I ended up focusing on all of the classic climbs in Rifle Canyon. I am not a huge fan of leading stuff onsight so I usually top rope climbs before I lead them.
Today was a struggle bus on that end of the rope, as I felt like more times than not we were doing bolt to bolt climbing. Very bouldery, very overhung, roof climbing, many quick draws already in place. We ended up driving 20 hours to send 10 of the most amazing routes. One of them a nice 5.10c. The routes here in the lower grade are pretty polished 5.7-5.10ish.
