Comments: This is without a doubt as hard as Far From Feral whether they are .9+ or .10a is really splitting hairs, I think for both it depends if you get the sequence right. I believe this has better climbing than FFF. Both are nice routes and sure to be crowd pleasers for years to come.

Comments: Not a bad climb, just nothing overall memorable about it. Still a worth addition.

Comments: This is a fun climb and a good addition, it has interesting climbing through the lower corner to cool face moves at the top. I just hope it stays dry enough to make it see some ascents

Comments: Mark, if you look at Bryce's book and its site you can see that Bryce is consistently updating the book and I know Magic Woods and Area 51 are two areas that he is still looking to update. Not having all the information at the ready like the more often climbed areas makes it a more time consuming project. I am sure when more info comes to light Bryce will continue his hard work and update it.

Comments: With this area receiving more attention in the past few months, does anyone thing it would be wise to break this area down further? I was thinking into four sections, Swamp Thing Boulder, Mad Hatter Boulder, Stoner Boulder and Chasm Boulder. Any thoughts? Just figured it might be easier to do it now with just a few routes in the database.

Comments: First Recorded Ascent. Rumney's bouldering history can be a bit of a mystery, unless I clean something of tons of loose rock, I assume it might have been cleaned before and just not recorded. So as not to offend anyone I don't take credit for the official FA just the First Recorded Ascent.

Comments: I adjusted my grade to V5 after thinking about it compared to the other 6's around.

Comments: I had originally thought that it might be more along the lines of V5, but after some discussions with friend who have climbed the route or tried it we settled on V6. Climb the monsters lines and compare and lets get a good consensus grade for it!

Comments: Christian glad you liked the route so much, what do you feel grade wise on it? We had a real hard time deciding on one.

When I cleaned this line of it was quite and endeavor. There was a lot of think moss and big chunks of rock in the moss and the crack was jam packed with small rocks that took some tinkering to get out. While I was doing this I started to clean the left most arete on the face Mark mentions above, the top was fairly cleaned off but the face needs a bit more scrubbing, they do l... more >>

Comments: This is just speculation because I have never climbed 'Groove' but I always though you climbed the groove more directly for 'Groove". 'Old Man' doesn't seem to follow the groove for more than the first move.

MAYBE beta for 'Groove' is go up left hand to the crimp then knee bar and layback up the shallow corner? Not too sure though... Pure speculation.

Comments: No worries man, it is a pretty fun climb and feels unique to the area because the crux is all about balance and not about pure power, get on it and tell us what you think!

Comments: This is a fun little wall to climb on, can be a bit sandy but worth a brushing to climb it. Any info on what your routes were Mark?
