Sam Elias on Rifle's Tomfoolery (5.14b)


Tomfoolery from Joey Kinder on Vimeo.

Sam Elias climbs the seldom repeated Tomfoolery (5.14b) in Rifle Canyon. This route put up by Tommy Caldwell ca. 1996 or 1997 is rarely climbed yet attempted by the best. An ultra-bizarre style gets you up this route, and Sam Elias made a repeat in the summer of 2010. More recently, Jonathan Siegrist attempted the route but was unable to figure out the beta.
