Comments: With leaves on the trees and a quiet voice I didn't feel intrusive at all but if you plan to be a jack ass go back to the jack ass zone haha...

Comments: Hanger is missing from the second bolt... I placed a cam there but what are the odds you will have one of those with you at rumney, right? Just be warned until the situation is rectified

Comments: I have now climbed it three times and today I watched two friends who are very solid on 5.10s climb it (both one hung it)... I have decided on an upgrade to low end 5.11... I'm a lot of things but I try not to be a sand bagger... My least favorite thing about developing routes is having to slap a grade on them so please chime in if you climb this or any other route that is new and hasn't reached a solid consensus grade

Comments: I found things to go pretty well until the very top.

If the anchors were a little lower it would be 12a(ish) IMO...

however, as it stands there is either a ridiculously big move or a hard delicate mantle/slab to get to the anchor. I went with the slab option since that's my groove... GOOD LUCK!

(and watch out for falling ice down there this time of year!)

Comments: good start! once its organized and developed a bit more it might get enough play to keep more of these things clean...

Comments: haha i'll reserve judgement as to whether you are a bastard but yes, stemming rests are "off" if the grade you are hoping to climb is 5.12c. however i always say its your game and you can play it how ever you like...
though i always thought the no stemming rule made the climb a bit contrived i was pleasantly surprised by the way it climbed once i got around to doing it... It doesn't feel contrived when you stop worrying about the corner and keep focusing on the next crimp, and the next, and the... more >>

Comments: The top of the climb has a few ledges that cold collect snow and it tops out in to a groove so if there is any melting going on I don't think it would be dry. All in all I'd say, not a good winter route (or cliff) but on a cold dry day it might just work...

Comments: Thanks peter. I followed this route as my first big multi pitch (many years before i took this) and that spot (roughly) was when i fell in love with that exposed feeling... It is truly an amazing position especially for this area.

Comments: I did a cool link-up in to this today, anyone else done it? "sinister-purebred-ethics". I think you can figure out how it goes... Definitely the hardest way I've done Simonbar. getting in to it from the right is hard enough then add Know ethics :) good fun!

Comments: I just put in a report to the RCA about the badly spinning bolts on this here rig.
I don't know if they pose and true danger but better to be cautious. All three bolts are spinning as badly as I've seen at Rumney and with the close proximity of the sharp rocks below a failed bolt could be tragic. Watch your selves...

Comments: for what it is worth i am fairly anti-dogs at the crags (ive had food stolen, ropes stomped on, nearly been attacked multiple times) but i know jay and i think that he and his dog are both very respectful at the cliffs... as for other folks being influenced, most of them cant get their dogs out of my damn pack let alone in to a harness and up a climb....
