MULTI-PITCH IN RIFLE

Rifle Mountain Park is world famous for its single pitch sport climbing but starting in 2016 we will be offering guided trips on a new route, a small multi-pitch adventure in the heart of Rifle Canyon.

The route is called The Journey and features three small pitches in over 150 feet of climbing, topping out on a small buttress that separates itself from the canyon rim. It’s a unique route for Rifle, topping out the canyon rim instead of stopping at an arbitrary anchor point. The crux is a short section of 5.10 and the rest of the climbing comes in at 5.8/5.9, a grade that the vast majority of our guests can climb. And, with the help of our professionally trained guides we are confident you’ll find success and have a great time.
