Description

Maybe the nicest of the lines on the short wall at the extreme right end of Waimea. Starts on a jug and trends up and left, following a blunt missile-shaped feature. All the moves are pretty hard and the clips aren't easy, so it feels quite sustained despite its short length.

How many bolts? Where is it located at Waimea? Jan 8, 2008

4 Bolts. It is the second route to the right of the far right overhanging corner. Also, It is the third route from the right end of the cliff. The route goes from the right to left and seems like it drips most of the year, not that I've ever looked at climbing it but it drips right on the trail when you are coming from Bonsai and heading towards the left end of Waimea.

The miniature inquisition was meant more for mass curiosity than my own personal interest. Jan 8, 2008
Just tried this today for the first time.

It's basically a 15 move boulder problem with easy moves in the beginning, moderate moves in the end, and V8/9 meat. Strong lock off strength will help. Don't try this if you have an injury of your left shoulder. Start on two crimps, climbing up to gain the first and only jug on the route. Get a right hand pinch and move out left to set up for the "windmill" move to a small right hand crimp. Reset, move left, and basically do the exact same move again, though this time to a pinch. The rest is mid to high 5.11 to the chains.

Super fun, despite it's length. When compared to other "bolter problems" at Rumney this is in the upper echelons. Oct 2, 2012
