Comments: Travis - the parking is right along route 4, and is also right across / right next to the Inn up there, so it's not a very secluded place, and is not really ideal for breaking in to cars. I have never heard of any issues with break ins, I personally would feel fine leaving my car parked there all day (windows up and doors locked, of course)

Comments: A big "thank you" to the person who put in a new anchor several feet beneath the old one. A 60 meter rope will now cover the route just fine.

Comments: OK so I got on this today, since my partner was climbing The Anchovy Caper, so I had her preclip the first draw on the way down. Now that I've climbed it, I think there should still be an additional bolt added, but next to the first one, and make that the anchors. After the first bolt it becomes a completely different climb, and much easier than the nice boulder start. I recommend that anyone who enjoyed Anchovy caper to try going from the first bolt on Caper to the second bolt on Fish Corner... more >>

Comments: Eli - from what I have seen over the years, the ethics at Rumney is to have all sport climbs safely bolted. As an example, a lower bolt was added to the start of Squall on Upper Vader in the interest of safety.

Comments: Would any of the routes here be suitable for setting up a top rope? I will be vacationing there in a few weeks on Rust Pond and am interested in checking it out, but without a climbing partner who can belay for lead, my only option is to top rope.

Comments: I don't know if I was off route or what, but right before what I recall being the last bolt before the anchors the holds got really bad (right after you move back left on to the face and you start moving up), far worse than I would expect on a 10a route. I ended up pulling the draw as I was also a bit worried about hitting the ledge below in the event of a fall. I hope the problem was just me being off route.

Comments: Daniel - Everything on the main face left side can be toproped - there are several sets of bolted anchors, where each anchor can be used for multiple climbs. The shortest path to get to the anchors is to take the direct trail up to the main cliff, and continue around the left side. Many of the lower climbs can also be toproped although if I recall there is often rope rubbing on rock for those (although nothing too serious).

Comments: Derek - I'm going to assume you've never been to Rumney... pretty much any route more than a year old looks like this on every hold.
