Rumors of Glory ascends the overhang on the far right side of Frisky Cliff (just to the right of the Borg). This climb is only about 10 moves long and more like a V7/8 boulder problem. While the climbing is pretty casual for the first half of the overhang, the latter part is bouldery and a bit heady, especially the final throw to the lip. Even though there is a chipped hold, "Rumors" is a lot of fun and makes for a great summer climb.


5 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor. A dynamic belay is important for the last move, otherwise you can swing into the lower section fairly hard.
