Description

A fun addition to this section that was better than i thought it would be.

Start from the ledge near the big tree and work the rope out so it runs straight. I just throw the rope around the tree so the belayer can stand under the start of the route.
Anyway, climb the steep corner above, working the feet and making a tough move out left to a good stance. Move up and right and tackle a slight bulge to a slab with little crimps (getting on to the slab felt like the crux). Enjoy a nice ledge then finish one more vertical section on jugs and technical stuff to the anchor.

Location

On the right side of the A and D wall. Start on a dirt ledge near a large tree trunk.

Protection

10 bolts to 2 bolt anchor. A longer draw here and there and maybe a shoulder sling at the transition from the slab into the final steep keeps the rope running well.

This is my new favorite 5.8 at Rumney. Fun jug hauling to start, then pulling the bulge and over the slab with awesome crimps, and then fun juggy flakes to the chains. On top of that there's no chalk on the route! which makes it that much more fun...now no one climb it so we can keep it that way ;) Apr 5, 2009

I believe so, scramble up to the same ledge and then walk over right to the bolt line Apr 6, 2009

Is it possible to get to the ledge directly below Millennium Falcon from here? Does this route go just left of that ledge? May 27, 2010

yup that works fine, just a little vegitated traverse to the base of millennium... i dont think there is a bolted belay there though... you could belay from a tree if not... May 27, 2010

In addition to the fun moves, some thoughtful navigation in a couple of places.
I had some rope drag in the upper section (I guess due to the transition from the lower overhang to gentler section immediatly above) -- not sure what to do about it, anyway the climbing was easy enough so it didn't get in my way. Oct 17, 2012

As of 3/26/13, the left fixed clip on this route is broken. When I found it it was stuck permanently in the open position and has a weird string hanging from it. Not sure what this was about. Just giving the heads up. Mar 27, 2013

Really nice, steep climb. Nothing sketchy, not too hard for the grade. Sep 25, 2014

I climbed this last night on 11/9/14 - there is a right-facing flake jug in the top 3rd of the climb right after the under-cling block. It felt fine on my way up but cleaning on the way down I grabbed the flake and it pulled loose. Couldnt dislodge it completely but definitely not solid any more. No chalk to mark it with an X so watch out!

There's another big hold in a similar spot so shouldn't be an issue Nov 10, 2014
