Description 

This is a recently cleaned ('08) route the uphill side of the barn door boulder. I'm sure it has been done years back but this is a great new one to try. This thing is a slopers paradise.

Updated description from Matthew Wallace since holds changed - Sit start with the two crimps and move up to the next good crimp with your left, from there traverse out right using the slopers and the gaston crimp to reach a big positive sloper 2/3's up the arete. Now here is the crux, get your feet situated and match a little crimp, pull hard and stick the jug horn at the top, finish off the easy top out.

Location 

on the backside of the barndoor boulder. look for the mossy, blute arete that moves up left till it gets steep. start it just right of a corner in the middle of the face.

Protection 

spotter, pad

I really believe that with a few more ascents and a little bit of publicity this could become a Rumney classic, it is a different style of route for the bouldering in the Rumney area, because it is a pure slopey route and that is very different for the pound.

So I noticed that a foothold had broken off near the start sometime last winter. Ive tried every combination but by the 3rd move i get stuck without it. I havnt been able to sent it since but the broken flake definatly increased the grade

This route has changed since the description was written, the sharks tooth hold is no longer there, one of the start crimps broke leaving the start different and the foot Garrett mentions above. So here is a newer updated description to go along with the one above:

Sit start with the two crimps and move up to the next good crimp with your left, from there traverse out right using the slopers and the gaston crimp to reach a big positive sloper 2/3's up the arete. Now here is the crux, get your feet situated and match a little crimp, pull hard and stick the jug horn at the top, finish off the easy top out.

I think the route climbs better now, post breakages. Now is in a very solid state and I don't foresee any more exfoliation in its near future. Climb this route.
