Description 

This link up is quite contrived and not all that much fun (though a "bad" climb is much better than no climb at all).... It does however have a purpose....
Climb this route if:
1: Your sporty, projecting friends insist on working the hard stuff at Monsters even if you aren't ready for that sort of thing....
2: You really need to warm up slow for a red point of one of the tough climbs here (though you might be better off climbing one of the easier 5.11s)....
3: If you are like me and your goal is to climb every route at Rumney regardless of grade or quality....

Start as for Abominable Snowman (5.11b) and move left on an obvious ledge till the end of it where you head straight up the second half of Source of Madness (5.10d).... This is the crux, and it always seems hard for the grade for me or I'm missing a very important piece of beta....

If you decide to climb it, do me a favor and enjoy it....


Location 

Traverses right to left on the obvious, midway ledge on the left side of the crag....


Protection 

6 bolts to quick clips.
