Man Overboard directly attacks the biggest roof in Rumney. Start as for Whip Tide, through the initial boulder problem and up the corner. At the base of the big roof at the top of the cliff, instead of bailing out right (Whip Tide) or bailing out left (E-Ticket), forge a path straight through the roof to anchors hanging over the lip.

The holds in the roof itself are pretty good, and a possible knee bar or bat-hang might offer a good rest. The crux is pulling the lip. Make desperate moves past the anchors to a very interesting pocket waaay back from the edge. Don't grab the chains. Top out the cliff.

Many people rap in from the top to check out the holds on the topout. It is pretty difficult to figure out the topout on the fly as a good sized whipper awaits those who fall at the lip.
