Onsighting Outer Bounds

Description 

The third bolted line to the right on this over-sized boulder.

Start just left of a red paint mark on the rock. Climb straight up the slab until you get to a bulge. Climb over the bulge on fun moves to the chains.

Not a fantastic route but not a waste of time either, particularly on a busy weekend day.

Location 

The left of the 2 bolted routes on this boulder.

Protection 

3 bolts to anchor.

Although this area gets very little attention I headed out here today, it was awesome, I actually highly suggest this route. But be warned it needs some cleaning... ok maybe a lot of cleaning...

I agree with Matthew that this route is fantastic, but I disagree that it needs cleaning. This climb is fantastic for the grade with plentiful and amazing feet which the lichen, rather than detracting from the climb, makes it much more enjoyable.

I agree the lichen does indeed make it fun, I think I'm just spoiled by the normally really clean rock at Rumney. It is a fun adventure though.
