Description

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

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

Protection

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

This description is spot on except you go out to the left from the anchors of White Toad's first pitch. Cool climb. Dec 7, 2009

:-) No no, thank you! I'm grateful for all the great beta and maps on MP that have helped me over the past year and many of them are actually things you've posted Lee. I'll try and give back when I can and hopefully help someone else. Dec 8, 2009

This is a really good short pitch, it would get full stars if the corner you climb was another forty feet long. I would highly recommend this pitch to everyone! Jul 13, 2011

I'm always looking at where I'll end up if I screw up and this was not a climb for me to fall off of the crux bc I would have slammed into the ledge below. Sep 26, 2015
