Description

Not a classic by a long shot but it contains some really fun moves... the problem with the route is the vegitation, loose rock, and rope drag but what do you want... We get greedy dont we... haha...

Start by mantling on to a shelf and working right until it is possible to pull over the roof... Continue up staying right of the bolts... After clipping the last one traverse left across the line of bolts with your hands on a ledge... Mantel then make one last move around a small tree and on to the quick clips...

Location

The first bolted route left of the three 5.12s at the far right side of the cliff before it bends up the hill... Starts by climbing on to a right leaning ramp/shelf...

Protection

7 bolts to quick clips...

This is in the running for the worst route I've done at Rumney. It's dirty, always wet, bolted weirdly, and generally sketchy all around, though I'm told that some people (i.e., Lee) like this kind of climbing. Jun 25, 2015

Hey Lee, Jay is bitchin you for giving it one star. He must think I'm a lunatic for giving two stars!!! Jun 26, 2015
OK .... I just led this route today. The bolting with the resulting rope drag was a bummer towards the top, but .... in the Fall the climb is dry, there is no dirt, and it was sustainingly interesting. After the low crux, if you follow the bolts straight up, it is clean and challenging and fun. Don't go right off into the lichen and dirt. Oct 7, 2015

Jay, worst route at Rumney? Sheesh. I thought the mantle and balancey traverse were interesting, and the overhang was fun. At the top, I think it's simpler to finish just to the right of the last bolt, rather than do the dirty, highly vegetated hand traverse to the left (which is about 5.2 anyway). Jul 21, 2016
