Comments: Not a bad climb. It is always fun to have to squeeze up something in New England instead of crimping!

Comments: This is a fantastic problem and a pretty good warm up for the harder things in the area.

Comments: Cool climbing, being tall makes the sequence different but still really fun.

Comments: I kept my feet below me on my onsight, it climbed beautifully this way. It also climbed a bit harder but a bit better than rocking up onto the ramp.

Comments: The starting flake on this route is no longer "Semi-Solid" is wiggly and dangerous. The problem can still be climbed by starting on the shelf just below the sketchy flake.

Comments: Thinking of checking out this area soon, what conditions should we expect to find the boulders in? Do people still climb here?

Comments: A fun little problem that has some excitement every time you hit the flexing jug. The top half needs a good cleaning...

Comments: This problem s fantastic. Really fun climbing linking good edges. It would see tons of ascents if it was at a busier climbing area. I didn't get the send due to a very mossy top-out, I plan on scrubbing it next time I am at the Fire Tower Boulders.

Comments: I highly recommend this climb. It is very different by Rumney's standards. I find most Rumney boulders are on the burly side, however this one is all about slow, controlled movement. It is a fun change of pace!

Comments: A better name for this would be 'Barn Door Indirect" or 'The Barn Ladder'. Anyone have an objection to me changing the name to something that represents the climb a bit better?

Comments: Finally got around to climbing this today. Although the holds are still a bit sharp in places the route climbs fairly well. It starts with fun tension-y movement on good holds to a large move to a jug. It would get another star if a tumble down the hill wasn't always in the back of your mind.

Comments: There is currently a birds nest with eggs in it on the large sloping rail. Over the last few years this nest has been torn down, I really hope that that doesn't happen again this year. B-Boy Stance should probably be avoided as well to give the nest its space until the eggs hatch.

Comments: I climbed this route as Lanky describes. I agree with Christian, this thing is certainly harder than V3! A good climb though!

Comments: I am not sure what that is for, it certainly seems there could be a direct start to the arete!

Comments: The climb that goes up the arete starts as for 'Jon's Arete' and after hitting the good hold that marks the end of the crux on Jon's, it busts right and heads up the arete. I don't think it has a name, its supposed to be in the v9-v10 range I believe, it really needs some cleaning before it is climbable.

The route that climbs the edges to the left s called Slash, i believe it goes at v6.

Comments: Hiked up and checked this out today, I agree it looks tough and is going to be tougher for taller folks, even with that possible disadvantage i am look forward to getting on it!

Comments: The left side with all the curved flakes looks really cool! and the face to the left of that seems to have a couple possible lines in store!
