Description

Short but fun.
This cliff has some interesting powerful moves towards the bottom, and a fun finish.
the only bad thing about this climb is it is short.
Unfortunate that this climb is wet often and close to the other climbs at this cliff that are so classic.

Location

Right side of cliff, right of where trail comes up to cliff.

Protection

4 bolts to anchor

I climbed it like BDalhaus, but one thing is missing. The left side is very sharp! Even though Rumney is known for its sharp schist, tape those tips up and save some skin. The route need more traffic, but like said, if you don't know there are two climbs on the right side of the wall, people will miss them. Not really visible from the main climbs at Bonsai.

This route is actually very fun but felt soft. That might be because it is bouldery and that's my strong point, anybody else think this is soft?

We did a jump start to the jug up and left of the slopey rail, this seemed like a natural way to start the route. has anyone else done this beta? Apr 14, 2012

the bottom is overhanging and happens to be the crux...depending on your beta it can either be crimpy (straight up) or less crimpy (slightly left). i've always started with a heelhook and used the holds on the left. once you stand up on the lower angled face above things become far easier - it is all balance and a little technique at that point.
