Welcome to Rifle Canyon and Rifle Climbers Coalition!
Rifle Mountain Park, aka 'Rifle Canyon', aka 'Rifle', is a unique climbing area in the heart of Colorado's high country. It is a special crag on any applicable scale for its incomparable beauty and a choice of aesthetic and hard climbing routes. Climbers will find here the highest concentration of difficulty per single linear mile and one of the friendliest climbers' posses in the world.

Rifle Climbers Coalition is a community-based, non-profit organization representing climbers and managing all climbing-related issues. While you enjoy climbing in Rifle, please respect park regulations and adhere to local community's respectful conduct toward the canyon.

Events 2019

Do you love climbing in Rifle? Are you slacking on the job due to daydreams about awesome sends? Do you lose sleep rehearsing the beta of your newest project? If so, you might suffer from Rifleitis; a rare but curable condition that is particularly prevalent in the Spring and Fall. Suggested treatments include volunteering at the upcoming Rendez-Spew. Many fellow climbers have found that volunteering helps reduce the symptoms of Rifleitis significantly. This year (September 15th) we need your help with the following tasks:

-Bridge re-building at the Bauhaus;
-Tent platforms within the campground - sites 1 and 2;
-Installing signs and maintaining the trails;
-Belay stations cleanups;
-Hold cleaning: brushes will be provided and we ask that all climbers take the opportunity to brush off their favorites routes.

Any bit helps: one hour, four hours, the whole day. Afterward, please join us for FREE beer, food, bonfire, and music, fundraising silent auction and raffle.
While we cannot guarantee this will resolve your Rifleitis but it will give you good karma and perhaps that will help you send your project!
