Comments: Nick, after you clip the second bolt, feel left to find a HUGE jug just over the lip of the overhang. Step right foot high, reach to almost the back of the first ledge to find a nice incut for your right hand. Knee(s) not required. :)

Comments: Just curious, anyone climbed this route recently? Is it dry (enough)?
Bring along a brush? Thanks again Mark.

Comments: I agree, it is not impossible for shorties; just need good (right) foot work, core tension, and a bit of a stretch/pop. It also really helps to have the pro RIGHT THERE. A bit shoulder-y for the grade.

Comments: Is "Saya Steve" meant to mean "I am Steve" or "My name is Steve"?
Looks good!

Comments: Well, Nick, congrats are def in order then! Nice.
Ha-ha, no worries. In this kind of situation, I will try to get one of my peeps to take the bait and go for the onsight. First, I will sponge his/her Beta, then have them clean and tick all the key holds on the way down. Draws pre-hung and all that. Sleazy but I need to maximize the little true talent that I have. Otherwise .......

Comments: Thanks Mark. Good to know. I like to do this little adventure next year. I will bring along two steel bines to leave on The Thang. I assume there are leaver draws or just aluminum biners up there now.

Comments: "Access the route by climbing rock du jours 1st pitch but breaking left to an anchor on the big ledge"
How hard is this mini pitch? How's the protection? Most of the "Gold" climbs kick my ass :). I like to get a closer look at the carnage from years ago. And maybe even do this mini route what is left of The Thang.

Comments: Thanks for the update, Nick. Glad you are still making it outdoors! We skipped this climb the last time we were @ G cause bolting at the top looked kinda of sparse given how small the holds looked from the ground. I am going to assume it is .11b and give it a go in 2016.

Comments: The direct start, w/o a stick clip is .10- up to about 5 feet off the ground. It is .9/.9+ the rest of the way to the anchor. By direct start I mean use the obvious sidepull/undercling on the right, about four feet off the ground, and go more or less straight up for a couple more feet until you gain good hand holds. From there, traverse left with feet on the ledge, then climb around the bulge on its left to clip the 1st bolt. I am 5'5" and have zero ape index and this way felt .10-.

Comments: One of the best routes I did during my 2011 or 2012 trip to RRG. If memory serves, there is a good rest somewhere in the top 1/4 of the route. The finish is pumpy and a little tricky but the hand and foot holds (for this climb to go at low 5.10) are all there. Seems bolted safe enough.

Comments: That would be fabulous, Mark. I thank you now!! I have always wanted to check out the rock above the modern OC and Citrasolve. Post up before and after pics if you can.

Comments: I have to admit there is something "sexy" and satisfying about linking pitches. I did a bunch of that at The Gunks in '95 and '96 right after I got my (then unusual) 60m Mammut. For Rumney, I have only done Bullwinkle Goes Ballistic into Air and Present Danger (not recommended). Not P1&P2 of Trop, nor Black Mamba in one go. Certainly A&D and the Main Cliff are rife with possibilities!!

Comments: Not sure. Sorry if I had implied it can be done in one long pitch with a 60 or 70m rope. In principle, with a long enough rope, long slings and maybe some back cleaning certainly LOOKS possible. I have only done it in two pitches.

Comments: Having done BS as second pitch to Big Easy or the other moderate nearby, I can't say I agree. Though not quite as easy to do it in one pitch, but much more moderate than Steel Curtain, I think Charity Case to Stairway To Heaven is quite nice. I have to admit I have yet to try Cow Patty to Bridge To Nowhere combo which I believe is shorter than 200 ft anyways. Time to buy that 120m rope!

Comments: I concur with above.
Not to mention it might be "too close" to Buffalo Road for the locals liking.
I got a chuckle form the name, having just taken a trip to RRG. Cute.

Comments: Nick, remember what we said about most of Ed's routes? I think we are missing some cerebral Beta here that makes the route 2-star. Personally I found Ian's Arete and Dog Star more fun, at about the same grade.

Comments: Thanks for the report on The Bakery. I guess I will avoid it. I just love "conditions were not good, but good attitudes prevailed.". I might just have to plagiarize it at some point :).

Comments: Consensus of .11a by a wide margin at redriverclimbing.com (Ray's site). Seems like last move is harder for shorties like us. Will try this route the next time I find myself at The Gallery.

Comments: Jumping into a finger lock carries with it significant risk of injury. I tried it once too. My advice? Use a cheater block so that you can reach a decent hold with one hand but not both.

Comments: Good route. Def stick clip. IMO, V2+ boulder problem to sustained .11a/b climbing to the top. I give it 2.5 stars.

Comments: Very good route. Stick clip recommended. .11a seems fair but the top 1/3 is much easier than .11a.

Comments: IMO, the best of the three .10's on this wall. Not the hardest but the nicest. .10a/b seems fair.
