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: Nice! so few people bother with footwork on this climb but I always stem it out.

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.

Comments: What a wild route! Adventurous and tough as nails. I agree with the 5.11 grade for sure. I had heard 5.10 and was caught a little off guard being a little wasted from hard climbing yesterday. Anyway, onsighted by the skin of my teeth and found it quite fun!

Comments: The birds are in a different nest this year just across from the crows nest atop Yellowknife Buttress... Chris Martin who is in charge of the closures was considering closing some of crows nest this year but I think it would just be the left side of the crag and there would be signs up there... but yes as Mark said do avoid that rap station while nesting is going on.

Comments: 1st pitch would get 3 stars from me, second pitch 1 star.

First pitch is thought provoking, well protected, and generally enjoyable from the interesting shallow corner at the start right up to the engaging mantle move at the top.
I found the second pitch to be reachy (and I'm 6'2") and a little awkward. That would be ok but one of the tough spots is right above a big ledge I really didn't want to fall on. It is worth climbing but there are MUCH better 5.11s on the cliff.

Comments: Doesn't seem like an independent line IMO. More of a stand start eliminate. But good climbing I'm sure :) do Fleet Street ;) and Mrs. Lovett, those are the best.
