Comments: The 5th bolt never quite engaged as well as I'd have liked. I tried to fix it the other day and it is now looser. I couldn't get it out with a pry bar so I think it will be safe for now (and the climbing there is about 5.3) but I plan to replace it very soon.

Comments: Nothing is "off route" if you can reach the bolts from it. Hope that helps.

Comments: You're on to me! haha
yeah, Little Orphan Angry was a real puzzle to put together.

That seam is at the top of my wish list. It is painful but the crux is finding it dry ;)

Comments: Today while belaying my second, the hanger on the first bolt fell off... I noticed it was loose on the way up, but didn't expect that.... I plan to fix it next time I'm up there.

Comments: After a few days of working on it, today I managed to send this old seemingly abandoned project.
I gave 'er a name, took a stab at the grade and updated the description.

The old "Seeping Crack 5.9?" description is no longer. Turned out to be harder and way more entertaining than it looked :)

Comments: After climbing it again I downgraded it a bit from my original proposed grade. I think the rain helped clean off the dust and made it feet a little grittier. Super fun low end 5.10.

Comments: By gear I meant slings and locking biners. Sorry if that wasnt clear. I guess I can be more specific. I'll take care of it.

Comments: It was a really nice treat to discover a new true crack climb at Rumney! And one at a grade that most people can enjoy too. I do hope that some of you Rumney folks get out there to check it out. I know that bolts make people more likely to get on stuff out there but this one would be a tragedy to bolt. It's perfect just the way it is.

Comments: Great news Will! I was just thinking I would ask around if it had been done in recent memory.
I was also thinking of hanging a long draw off of the 3rd so thanks for confirming that as a good plan.

Comments: For what it's worth: I noticed no difference in difficulty but I did have to choose a new left hand hold to start. To be clear the missing hold is when your feet are still on or near the ground, the moves around the corner seemed exactly the same. Still a great start to a great 5.11, and/or a "moderate" intro to the harder stuff that shares this start.

Comments: Adventurous route finding, classic slab runouts, and just enough loose rock to make it exciting. A really fun outing. There were 3 parties on the Direct Route, and we were able to get around all of them and top out alone. Might be a good plan for proficient parties looking to avoid a traffic jam.

Comments: With all the talk of this being a finger crack I was surprised to find there were quite a few hands/thin hands sections. The fingers were wide for the most part with a couple of good solid locks thrown in, a tips move or two at the top. Great variety really, not what I was expecting from what I had read but every bit as fun as promised.

Comments: Overall a decent route but the crux felt... Yucky... Reachy and off balance... My second is a very solid 5.10 climber but couldn't make the reaches... Even with my long reach I was at extension and it felt hard for 5.10...

Comments: Great fun! Looks like it took a lot of cleaning so, nice work! Well protected and interesting the whole way. A great test of kneebar skills.
