Here's what other sites are saying:
Simply put, Rifle Mountain Park is the best limestone sport climbing destination in North America. Confined to a narrow box canyon two miles long, RMP contains an unbelievable concentration of standard setting climbing. Long known for its overhanging enduro-fests, the canyon has seen a revitalization of route development, with the majority of the new routing taking place in the moderate grades of 5.11 and under. Rifle Mountain Park and Western Colorado Rock Climbs also details over 20 newly developed and never before published crags in Glenwood Canyon, the Frying Pan River Valley, the Crystal River Valley, and around Main Elk Creek near New Castle. With updates of the classic spots like the Fortress of Solitude and the Redstone Boulders, as well as details about the soon-to-be classic crags of the Narrows near Redstone, the Skillet above Basalt, and Lime Creek above Eagle, this guidebook is a must have for any Colorado rock addict. Rifle Mountain Park and Western Colorado Rock Climbs also showcases the region's climbing with hundreds of color photographs, including stunning action shots from pro shooters like Keith Ladzinski, Celin Serbo, and Tim Kemple, as well as the photos of BJ Sbarra.
