Rifle Mountain Park is one of the world's best sport-climbing areas. The canyon's limestone cliffs have more than 400 established rock climbs, including some of most difficult in America. Climbers come from all over the world to challenge themselves on these steep, gymnastic testpieces. But Rifle is much more than a crucible for hard climbing; it also has many great easier climbs, suitable for novice and intermediate climbers. Meanwhile, the easy, roadside access, park-like atmosphere, and beautiful surroundings make it a uniquely kid- and family-friendly destination. This book celebrates the climbs, climbers, natural beauty, and vibrant “scene" of Rifle Mountain Park.
