Description

Not a normal sport climb by any means....
The route follows a slightly inverted "V" groove through interesting stemming moves. Some folks even end up with there backs facing to the wall and pulling a corkscrew move.... When was the last time you did that on a sport route?

Heaven is a good warm up for the harder climbs at the crag or a very worth while route in its own right....

A few times I've been on it I've had to do battle with big spiders and big webs...so make your friend go first....

Location

The route follows the "V" groove that splits the super-steep, right section of the cliff from the left section.... Stick clip and start on the left or jump for the good holds on the right....

Protection

5 bolts to anchors.

I've done it 3 or 4 times and i think i've done the corkscrew twice and didn't the other time or 2... i think what ever flows is how it goes... May 15, 2008

This is a miniature version of Flying Hawaiian. In the gigantic dihedral of Flying you feel small and you need to stretch a lot. In Heaven's dihedral, you feel like Gulliver in the Lilliputians land..... Oct 25, 2014

Anyone who loves weird and unique climbs, put this one on your short list. Just an amazing climb that will challenge you start to finish - going for the onsight was the most fun I've had at Rumney in a long time.

Bring a cool head, because although the bolts spacing and locations are totally fine, the positions you have to put your body in to climb this route could set you up for some nasty falls. Oct 2, 2016
