Description

If you like kneebars, then you'll love this route. Otherwise, stay away! I think this would be a three-star route without the grueling kneebar crux . . . but I don't really like kneebars.

Rendezspew is one route left of Vitamin H and has fixed chain draws on all but the first bolt. It climbs through the left edge of the broken-out patch where the huge shield of rock cut loose before moving up into a very overhanging crack.

Thuggy climbing down low and in the crack section lead to the "TV set," an enormous block behind which you can double-kneebar no-hands rest. The crux involves scumming your right knee up the block as you paw at imaginary holds. After this unpleasantness, the route is pure fun -- steep, pumpy and varied on very overhanging rock. Many people elect to skip the difficult last clip on redpoint, risking a long but clean fall into space.

A token bit of glue "holds" the TV set on. Despite its dangerous appearance, the block is actually very solid (at least for the time being) and doesn't so much as vibrate when you bang on it.

Protection

1 or 2 draws. The rest is chains.

Matt Samet bolted this route. He gifted it to me. Thanks, Matt. Agreed with stefan96. It's a really nice route but a little harder than Pump-O-Rama. The name comes from the Access Fund Rendezvous event that I was supposed to go to the weekend I redpointed. Booraa! Jul 27, 2012

Love that comment, Arnold. Inspiring. Go after rock climbs! You won't know what the experience is until you actually get up there. Jul 26, 2011

I let the description of this route dissuade me from trying it for a long time. I finally got persuaded by a friend who was projecting it. This route is SICK wild, athletic, acrobatic awesomeness. Once you figure it out, doing the crux will fill you with a pure joy usually reserved for enlightened monks. Jun 26, 2011
