Location: NH : *Rumney : The Monolith : Sasquatch Summer ascent (5.10)

Comments: Climbed this today. Access from the the top is definitely the way to go.

So much loose rock on top and in the gully. No one at Yellowknife when we were there, thank goodness. We shot at least 3 large blocks down the cliff during the rappel in despite being very careful.

This climb has decent enough climbing, but covered in lichen with lots of loose and fragile flakes during the middle cruxy part of the cliff. Be VERY careful pulling on the flakes on this climb and your partner should WEAR A H... more >>

Comments: Climbed this thing today.

A fantastic adventure getting to the cliff from Crow's Nest/Jimmy Cliff. Tons of ledge scrambling and hanging out at the very nice clifftop.

Good climbing through the steep section, very well bolted and eases up significantly after that. I broke a handful of footholds and scraped a ton of lichen off of the climb. It would be a great climb if you are in the area and it was cleaned. Otherwise, not exactly worth the hike and potential injury from loose blocks in the gull... more >>

Comments: Climbed this one as part of a challenge, and glad a repeat is not in the cards for me.
Lots of lichen and loose rock, pulled out a football sized clipping jug at the second bolt and then took it back down to the belay. It would have killed my belayed for sure. The crux section is definitely not made any easier by the exfoliating footholds which fall down on your belayer, but is quite fun and challenging to find the hold hidden up and right in the lichen. Cleaning the route was quite dangerous, w... more >>

Comments: The first 4 bolts of this climb is easily linked into Tropicana, making for an interesting 12a that relies on body position and aim. Very fun.

Comments: yes, very true about the "long" statement, perhaps a great top to bottom finger crack would be a better description since so many of the island's cracks are broken by ledges.

Comments: This is a great finish to either the arete or the corner. Still requires a #2 and a .75 for gear for safety. Two bolts then gear to the top. Cool moves in the little roof section.

Comments: Yes fines are being given, if you do climb do not be caught and do not fall. if is only illegal to "jump or fall into the water from above 6 feet in height" they do not specify climbing as illegal, just falling.

Comments: Yup, sure is. The visitors' center is the only place to get this angle, unless you are a bored local and you climb at North Bridge wall and top out one of those climbs...then of course your belay anchors usually is the visitor center lookout support posts...
