Comments: Volunteers from SLCA and HawkWatch International located an active Golden Eagle nest near this crag.

Although the official seasonal closure (to protect wintering big game animals) is over, please consider possible impacts to wildlife when choosing where to climb. Climbing elsewhere until the chicks have fledged from this nest will allow them to remain undisturbed and will help improve relations between the climbing community and the land manager at this access-sensitive area.

Comments: As of 4/2/2016, a pair of Prairie Falcons have taken up residence in the Wolfenstein Buttress. They were observed making territorial flights and are or will be nesting in one of the cracks or cavities on the wall. Consider avoiding this formation and climbing elsewhere to give them the space they need.

My guess is that climbing on the Newlywed wall (or further right) or on the Shadow Buttress (or anything left) is less likely to disturb them. Keep an eye out for them, and if they make repeated... more >>

Comments: Can link 1-2, or 2-3. The bulge on p1 feels committing. p2 is much easier than the others, but has some substantial runouts on easier terrain (hard moves are well protected though) The route is great, I do it almost every time I go to ibex.

Comments: A trad climber's boulder problem. Many ways to do this one, craftiness will accomplish what can also be done with brute force on this problem. Fun to work, safe landing (2 pads are very comfortable) and easy on the skin.

Comments: I was nervous to try this route, since it was one of the harder ones I had gotten on at that point. I got some great beta from some other visiting climbers, which worked for this and many many other routes: "If a hold looks good, just toss to it!"

Such an awesome climb

Comments: I didn't feel scared of the 'loose rock' on this climb. It seems to have cleaned up well and it is a great route with long moves between awesome jugged out holds (most better than they look from the ground).

Comments: To clean after leading the whole thing, it helps to clip your rope (climber's side) into one of the midway anchor's fixed biners as a directional while being lowered. This allows you to be lowered straight down above your remaining bolts and clean them without penduluming all over the place.

Fantastic route, probably the best I have done at Rumney. Haven't done Crusher yet though so we'll see!

Comments: So so fun!!! Fingerlocks like jugs to a burly crux at the top that for me involved a rugged (but solid) fist jam. Can't wait to get back and lead this thing clean.

A couple harder sections intermixed with more solid locks and jams with good horizontals. Milk your rests and you will send.

Comments: Safer, cleaner, and IMO better than queen of hearts to the left, sharing the same anchor.

As of this comment, fixed anchor consists of 3 fixed nuts and a laughably small tree/bush tied off with old cordelette to a couple oval biners. Can be backed up with a #2 camalot or other gear.

Comments: Lots of hollow flakes on this one made for a spooky lead. Next time I will TR this after leading Ace of spades (better moves, better gear).

Comments: nuts, double set of c3s and single set regular cams up to #2 will sew it up. I'd say PG since the beginning of the traverse out of the corner at the start felt a little hairy and the finishing jug haul did too, but the 5.9 and 5.10 moves you can have a bunch of (small) gear at your face if you want...

Comments: What an awesome route! Steep jugs start things off, and the delicious positive finger locks got me hooting and hollering after the tough (but short) thin hands section. Good active rests can be found on hand jams and locks for the middle part of the route, better use em cuz the bouldery top is physical and committing.

Gear is there for the whole route, some sections the rock sounded a bit hollow--not having taken many falls on cams in schist I wasn't sure how trustworthy some of the placements ... more >>

Comments: Rose crack's bolts need to go/be moved. The positioning is terrible. I couldn't even imagine reaching them while on lead, and it seems like they'd expose a seconding climber to a weird swing during the topout.

Led the thorn yesterday and I agree that the bolt anchor took some spice out of the top out. I had already hung extended slings on the bolts from working the route on TR, so it was easy to clip mid top out. I felt that without preplaced slings you still have to pretty much top out the rou... more >>

Comments: My partner pulled 2 nuts and decked on to me falling from the low crux of this climb. Place those nuts well, and extend them so they aren't getting levered out if you should fall past em.

Comments: So so sick. I found the hardest individual moves closest to the deck, the traverse didn't feel bad.

With a 70m, link the pitches like Barber did on the FA! Or at least belay your second up and give pitch 2 a go...it adds another 30-40 ft of fun climbing at 5.10. In its current state it is rough, rugged and raw with a hard to read crux off the belay, much lichen/moss and just a touch of choss to keep things interesting.

You can rap off the top with a 70 to the ground, probably could lower off ... more >>
