Comments: This is from Stone Crusade, John Sherman's excellent bouldering guide to the United States, published in 1999: "Twenty feet left of Pound Crack is West End (5.11c), a problem anyone would want a rope on. It has been bouldered, but only by those suckered in by the apparently large holds above the tweaky start. After several surely-that-next-full-hand-edge-couldn't-slope-as-bad-as-this-one moves, one commits to a pumping finish or a lengthy hospital stay."

Comments: Hi Christian, I thought the hardest move was about midway on the route. I think where the line veers left (check out the photo), you grab a hold out left and make a hard move to a flat crimp. Clipping the anchors was hard as well, but not as hard as that midway move. Now that I think about it, that crux move was really cool, and kinda made the route doing, despite it being so short. Hope this helps!

Comments: The above photo was taken at the least elephant-looking-angle possible. Now tell me this is NOT an elephant:

Comments: Good problem! Fun big moves on edges to a topout that's harder than it looks.

Comments: This is in the running for the worst route I've done at Rumney. It's dirty, always wet, bolted weirdly, and generally sketchy all around, though I'm told that some people (i.e., Lee) like this kind of climbing.

Comments: A great addition. Who knew that such nice rock was hiding under all that lichen up top? Well, I guess Ward knew!

Also, LOL to anyone who thinks about climbing outside right now. On my drive into Plymouth this morning, the car thermometer said -15 degrees F.

Comments: I'm glad to see this area getting some attention. There's a lot of rock up there, and it all seems pretty unexplored (or forgotten). It's strange that more people don't climb on these boulders, as the approach is perhaps the shortest in Rumney, outside the Pound. Maybe more info here will inspire people and revitalize the area.

I'm all for changing the name too.

Comments: Looks like a fun linkup, and a really long day! I'm surprised the mid-cliff access gully wasn't used. Wouldn't that speed things up?

Comments: I think this sounds like a great linkup. Anything to avoid Dark Star's painful crimp crux!
