Description Suggest change

A great variation to White Toad (5.7). The climbing is better than that of the usual second pitch and it offers steeper climbing on bolts rather than a slab with scarce pro (we are at Rumney after all, lets enjoy it).

Pitch 1: Climb the first pitch of White Toad (5.7 trad).

Pitch 2: From the first belay on White Toad head out left and clip your first bolt. The crux is getting established on the climb. Make a few steep powerful 5.8 moves to gain nice stemming and easier moves. After 20 feet or so you make one more tricky move to a stance at which time the tough stuff is over and you clip one more bolt before traversing right to the nice ledge above the first belay. Rap from here or continue up White Toad.

Location Suggest change

Starts on the ledge at the top of pitch one of White Toad.

Protection Suggest change

Small rack for pitch one (White Toad) and about 8 draws for Dead Toad.
