Loren starting up Five Niner (V1), Mt. Rubidoux


A tricky move or two in a slightly-overhanging seam lead to a good flat edge. Moving from this edge to the better holds up higher is the crux for most, and can be accomplished in several ways depending on your height and flexibility. One of the best problems for its grade on the hill. Good, steep rock, cool moves, and none of those painfully small edges Rubidoux is so notorious for. The base is a little rocky and uneven so consider doubling up the pads, or set up a toprope using the beaten-down bolts on top.

Right on, Tyler. Definitely one of the better problems for the grade at Mt. Rudidoux.
