Too Much Fun

look close and you will see the rope.
Long and fun, with an exciting opening sequence. Best to belay from the top, and there is a good ledge. Two ropes to rappell off. This route is in the first big turn off along the path along the base of the wall. Enjoy!
13 bolts to chain anchors
When you approach via the Flaming Rock trailhead, it dumps you out at the southwest corner of Bumblie Rock. Too Much Fun is on the right side of the west face in a nice little clearing.

Radical climb that starts on smooth rock and changes to classic city patina. I would recomend this climb to anyone willing to give it a go.

Bring many draws or skip bolts on the easy sections. I think there are 15 or more bolts. Bring two ropes to get back to the ground.
Sweet climb that looks way harder than it is.

Talked to Kevin Pogue...the FAist of this route...his feeling was that if you are shorter than 6 foot...it's 5.9 at the start. Over 6 foot...5.8, and the rest...well helll, THAT"S JUST FUN!!

Amen to the height-dependent difficulty comment. I'm 5' 5" on a tall day, and the sequence between the first and second bolts sure felt like 5.9 to me! But that's nothing new, and besides, Lynn Hill, Joe Brown and Don Whillans wouldn't give any of us shorties any sympathy. This is still a fantastic climb that lives up to its name.

One of the best 5.8 climbs on earth IMHO!!! Take a whole bunch of draws and possibly borrow your climbing buddies to make all the clips. Start is kinda tough for shorter folks!

My favorite climb at COR so far. I thought it was a very consistent 5.8 from bottom to top, with the first move to the second bolt being the hardest move on the climb. Bring plenty of draws! I brought 16 quickdraws and ran out, having to skip 2 bolts near the top. Luckily the final moves are easy. Great view from the top!

Not to be missed... The start felt hard maybe 5.8+, but I am 6'3" so it may be harder for shorter people...

Climbed this route in August 2007. Requires 18 quick draws plus another two for the anchor.

just to note: you can rap directly off the other side to chomping at the bit (transformers corridor) and then use those anchors to get down if you dont wanna carry two ropes up...

This was lots of fun. I beleive it is more like 17 or 18 bolts, unless you want to skipp some. I did skip the first one and still ran out of quickdraws near the top. Had a couple binners to protect though, because I'm a pansy.

Hmm...what is the opposite of an R rating? G doesn't begin to describe...

Maybe because it was cold and rainy it felt harder than the 5.8 rating. It certainly seemed at least as difficult as Private Idaho. Anyway, it's 18 bolts, not the 15 it states in the guidebook. Super fun, though. All the bolts are at least 8 feet apart so I wouldn't recommend skipping any.

Loved this route. Long, variable climbing to top. Bottom is indeed a bit harder for shorter climbers. I'm 6'1" and felt I could barely reach some of the holds at the bottom but I loved that section as well as the steeper jug-haul just above the opening sequences. I think the bottom is more like a 5.9. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

This is a great climb.
When you pull your rope, stand way over to your left (as you face the route, looking up) and give it a good pull. The wind blew our rope into the cracks to the right and it got stuck.

One of the best .8's ANYWHERE. A must do for climbers of all abilities .8 and up.

You can scramble down from this route by heading north along the ridge crest. Some downclimbing at the very end before hooking up with the trail back to the base - should you ever find yourself on top without a rope.
