About Sapper Wall:

Description: The smallish wall down stream from The Meat Wall Lots of varying routes here, you can climb something short and hard on the left or climb something long and pumpy on the right side. This was one of the first crags to see development in Rifle, The first bolted route in Rifle is here and called "Rumor Has It" after the venerable phone calls the first ascentionist's got when they decided to go and check it out "Rumor has it that the limestone on the western slope is climbable"

Approach: Park at the four car pullout at The Project Wall and walk 40 yards upstream to a trail that will take you to the crag.
