Comments: Crazy opening move (wouldn't want to miss... you'd certainly come back down onto the boulder) and fun easier climbing to the top.

Comments: Actually, dead on... the bolts are all a big reach out left to clip. It is a bit of a joke.

Comments: Probably was a bit more perfect (and easier) in its earlier days... a bit polished now. Wonderful climbing nonetheless!

Comments: This photo, and the one in the guide, make it seem like the route is overhung. Not true! It climbs more like a steep slab, never quite making it to vertical.

Comments: Very fun route, will get better with more traffic. Though probably not 5.12 overall, there is a whole lot of 5.11 climbing on this one!

Comments: I've seen that route too, all lonely out there.... it'd not the 11d (not in the book at all), looks more like 5.9 or 5.10.

Comments: Hey Lee. A friend of mine and I put up that slab last fall. We used the bolts from the crack anchor to clean/bolt it, and were planning to come back and put in an anchor, but forgot about it. I'll go out sometime in the near future and take care of it. It's probably about 5.6, short but nice edgy slab climbing. It will be a good way to get up there to set up a toprope on the cracks. I'll add it to MP after we finish it.

Comments: Anyone know if you can use the America the Beautiful national parks pass for parking at Rumney? Maybe you just leave the card on your dashboard?

Comments: Lee, I think it would be appropriate to remove the PG13 rating, given the super safe bolting of the climb. Wouldn't want anyone to miss out on scuttling their butt up this one because of a false sense of danger.

Comments: I found the infinity wall this past summer by continuing out past the bakery for about 10 minutes, passing a few small crags without much potential on the way. When we got to the wall, we said, hmm this looks cool, let's put our stuff down here and go find the infinity wall. After about 30 minutes aimlessly searching, we found our way back and then realized that it was actually the infinity wall. So, in conclusion, it is not as impressive as its name may imply. Marks description is good, and it ... more >>

It's funny how the clippity slab is almost exactly 45 degrees. I'm almost tempted to get out my protractor to confirm this.

Comments: Ha Lee clearly it was the clothes holding you back. If you take your pants off, you'll probly send China Beach next weekend.... if you can find someone to belay you.

Comments: I think this could be a nice climb if it were thoroughly cleaned and retrobolted. The corner certainly is a nice feature, and the reason it's so dirty is because no one climbs it, being a non-splitter trad route at Rumney. Anyone else have an opinion on this?

Comments: Kevin, how did you mislabel yourself as someone else?

Seeing your fingers in those locks makes me want to go climb this again...

Comments: I also think this is deserving of a lower, stick-clippable bolt. The corner is quite fun, and I think the reason no one climbs it is because all the bolts are after the crux!

Mark, does the bolt need to be a glue-in?

Comments: After seeing this route the other day in person, I don't see the big problem with it, as long as the potential loose rock has been thoroughly cleaned, which it sounds like Mike took care of. Although I don't think it'll get much traffic (a 12+ in a sea of classic 10's, with classic 12+'s just up the hill), it is pretty discrete, hiding behind the trees there (except for the red tape! Mike, did you send it yet?). If it's a squeeze, then so are Techno and Aquarius, but no one is going to complain ... more >>

Comments: Thanks for the info Mark. Is it the cut-leaf toothwort, the same one they put up the fence near Flesh for? I think it would be helpful for someone with good knowledge of the rare plants in the area to put some of that info (and photos if possible) here on MP. Most people, including myself, wouldn't know the difference between rare plants and weeds. Maybe we could work that out with someone from the forest service.

Comments: Does anyone know what the deal is with the anchors on top of the tallish section of cliff that is straight up from the bathrooms, very close to the parking lot, about 200 feet left of the Meadows Flow ice climbs? Looks like some pretty dirty chossy rock... maybe they're also for ice climbing?

Comments: This route is fun fun fun. The initial swinging boulder problem is very unique climbing!

I am taller (6') and obviously that makes grabbing the first holds easier, but getting your feet up and under you is easier for shorties! I thought 11a was a fair grade, it is a bouldery opening sequence.

Comments: Haha I just noticed that the quick clip in the picture is only rated at 11 kN. I guess the number decreases as the clip gets worn. Fixe has some pretty impressive technology these days!

Comments: I climbed this today after doing Captain Fingers, and getting off the ground made me feel like I was still on Captain Fingers! Super hard for "5.9". Probably more like a V2 then 5.7. I guess at Rumney that somewhow averages out to 5.9 though haha.

Comments: Nice Spang! Seems like everyone does that sequence a little differently. Is that a cam hanging next to the draw?
