BETA PHOTO: the lines at the bakery...


A small collection of routes on a little cliff band that is plagued by wetness most of the year. There are many reasons not to climb here, wet rock, moss, lichen, loose rocks, short routes, no anchors. the fact that it is very close to and overlooking somebody's house, etc. There is only one reason to climb here, Sport Moves 5.11a, its not classic but fun none the less.

The strangest thing about The Bakery is that the well bolted routes here don't have 2 bolt anchors. As of now there is a fixed biner on the last bolt of each route and i just used those biners to clean them.

In the old guide book mentions that The Bakery may be on private land so if you choose to climb here keep a low profile.

Getting There 

To the right of the parking lot wall. From the far right corner of the big parking lot(facing as you just pulled in to the lot) hike up the hill to the cliff band and walk right till you see bolts. There you are.

Featured Route For The Bakery

Sport Moves 5.11a 6c 22 VII+ 22 E3 5c  NH : *Rumney : The Bakery
The best route at this quirky micro crag. The first line you get to when you hike in. It follows the prominent arete feature but involves mostly face climbing to the right of the arete.Steep moves off the ground won't feel as hard if you hit it just right. There are however a few enticing sucker holds. At the half way point you hit a cruxy steep move to gain the crimpy but less difficult upper face.The top is covered in lichen so i didn't bother topping out....[more]   Browse More Classics in NH

Im pretty sure this land is on the property of the guy who own the Compost Cafe, his name is Josh he is a really low key guy who I dont think would have a problem with climbers on his property as long as they are respectful.

I was told a number of years ago that the consensus amongst those who have invested the most time and effort in developing Rumney, by one of said investors; that with all the other climbs it simply wasn't appropriate to intrude upon a neighbor's privacy. You may want to consider removing The Bakery from the site. Either that or touch base with a few key "investors" who still are in the area regarding their thoughts.

It has been 20~21 years since I last visited this micro crag. Any access issue presently? How about new route(s)? :)

No new routes that I know of, Soon, nor anchor upgrading. It is probably alright to go there if you are quiet, but I kind of figure it isn't worth bothering with. If you want something new ...
