Description 

A fun addition to this section that was better than i thought it would be.

Start from the ledge near the big tree and work the rope out so it runs straight. I just throw the rope around the tree so the belayer can stand under the start of the route.
Anyway, climb the steep corner above, working the feet and making a tough move to a good stance. Move up and right and tackle a slight bulge to a slab with little crimps (getting on to the slab felt like the crux). Enjoy a nice ledge then finish one more vertical section on jugs and technical stuff to the anchor.


Location 

On the right side of the A and D wall. Start on a dirt ledge near a large tree trunk.


Protection 

10 bolts to 2 bolt anchor. A longer draw here and there and maybe a shoulder sling at the transition from the slab into the final steep keeps the rope running well.

This is my new favorite 5.8 at Rumney. Fun jug hauling to start, then pulling the bulge and over the slab with awesome crimps, and then fun juggy flakes to the chains. On top of that there's no chalk on the route! which makes it that much more fun...now no one climb it so we can keep it that way ;)

I believe so, scramble up to the same ledge and then walk over right to the bolt line

Is it possible to get to the ledge directly below Millennium Falcon from here? Does this route go just left of that ledge?

yup that works fine, just a little vegitated traverse to the base of millennium... i dont think there is a bolted belay there though... you could belay from a tree if not...

In addition to the fun moves, some thoughtful navigation in a couple of places.
I had some rope drag in the upper section (I guess due to the transition from the lower overhang to gentler section immediatly above) -- not sure what to do about it, anyway the climbing was easy enough so it didn't get in my way.

As of 3/26/13, the left fixed clip on this route is broken. When I found it it was stuck permanently in the open position and has a weird string hanging from it. Not sure what this was about. Just giving the heads up.

Super fun jug-hauling and stemming up the corner and a great slab above. One of my favorite 5.8's on main cliff
