Description

Start on the base of the finger crack that faces the road on a big jug. Climb the crack in full view of passersby, careful to not let your head get the better of you on this highball classic.

Location

Faces road on big boulder that is described in Area Description. Obvious chalked line.
Important: When climbing on the road side, be very aware of cars and be ready to quickly get out of their way. Don't make drivers nervous and force them to drive around you! This is serious enough that the town has considered blowing up the boulder!

IMO this is the best boulder problem at Rumney, and one of the best problems in New England for the grade. Bomber locks at the bottom to slopers in the middle and some very tenuous lay back moves at the top. Tall, but with a flat landing. The only problem is that the cars behind you seem like they will deck your spotter. Nevertheless, amazing problem, get on it! Jul 31, 2016

When I was a bit younger I fell off with both arms over the top... couldn't find the good hold and just slid off... My spotters were of little use from that height... they basically spanked me on the way down as I crash landed on to my single pad... yeah, I recommend not falling from up there haha Jun 14, 2015

Would not want to fall off the last move of this thing, that would be rough. Jun 14, 2015

A good introductory highball- tall, but not unreasonably so, with a perfectly flat landing. If you are strong enough to make it to the sloper jug and/or layback crack below the top, you'll be fine on the moves after that. Grab some pads and give it a go! Jul 30, 2013
