What's the best route through the Rumney trail web to use to get to Jimmy Cliff? Last time we went, we ended up going past a huge talus field under some crag (can't remember which), which was slow, not so fun, and made me worry about breaking an ankle from a slip.

I think you went by bonsai which might be the easiest/quickest. But, you can avoid it. Just keep walking past the up trail that would take you to bonsai, towards lower vadar. Walk past that crag and follow the trail up and past waimea and up to Jimmy. Someone else probably knows better though. Good luck! Clippidee is still my favorite climb at Rumney. See below for map from MP.

You either went through Lower Vader or Bonsai. I prefer going through Bonsai myself.

Best/easiest approach is up past the left side of Lower Vader, then on yo through the easy/steep trail past the right side of Waimea.  No “huge talus field” to deal with.

What Chris D said is the most straightforward way by far
