Description

Always dry.

Moderate climbing somewhere short of its best. Useful as a warm-up or warm-down if bumming around the mountain has got you down...

This climb has some weird moves including a mandatory pinch (unusual for a 5.8 at Rumney) and a dynamic move that if avoided turns this climb into a 5.10- which sneaks up on ya.

Location

Right most route on the triple corners wall. Actually on the boulder between Waimea and Triple corners (route on right)

Protection

3 bolts to Anchor

If you stray too far right you may end up on a ledge above and away from your 3rd bolt. Jun 17, 2008

You can make it harder quickly if you go too far to the left. Sep 24, 2012

Find good holds on the right after clipping the first bolt. But as Jeffrey pointed out, you will want to climb left towards the third bolt if you want to be able to clip it. Sep 24, 2012

"I am not sure what I did wrong on this route but it felt wayyy harder than 5.8."

You probably missed the dynamic move. (Or, if you're not tall, the dyno.) Give it another go! The hold you're gunning for is bomber. Sep 27, 2013

A wicked fun 5.8 climb! Cool moves where you're jetting from one giant jug to another with lousy footholds. Thumbs up on this one. Oct 26, 2014

I gave this 3 stars six years ago. Wow, I've come a long way. :) Climbed this yesterday and still enjoyed the first half of the route but again naturally found myself climbing up onto the ledge on the right. Annoyed at the 3rd bolt being below me and out of reach, I downclimbed and went up the correct(?) way on jugs on the face. Bleh. Revised my rating to a single star ("OK") and think the 3rd bolt should havbe been closer to the ledge which feels like the most natural way up, perhaps at a grade easier. Just my two cents.

The right quick clip is sticky and hard to get the rope into. Oct 23, 2018 · Temporary Report
