Description

Collection of many quality, schist problems right next to the road 5 minutes from Rumney's main parking area.

The must do in my opinion is Welcome Crack and it is just stellar, Walk up the hill, cross the rock wall throw down your pad and climb the obvious crack to 18foot height at V1, it climbs like a route and you'll be sad when it is over.

Getting There

When driving into the village of Rumney from Route 25, instead of taking a left onto Buffalo Rd towards the crags, turn right onto Quincy Rd. Drive a couple minutes and large boulders beside the road will be obvious. There is a 15ft tall boulder on the south side of the road almost in the road, it always has chalk on it, this is your marker. The rest of the problems are on the north side of the road.

Important: Park well off the road, look both ways when crossing and don't hang out in or close by the edge of the road! It is dangerous and really pisses off the locals, to the point where the town has seriously considered blowing up the EDCL boulder. Be good neighbors!
