Start as for The Blot but move right to a flake near the lip. This route has small feet, but the feet are there, the holds are pretty good with a variety of different holds, this route will test your overall climbing skill by forcing you to use gastons, crimps, sidepulls. The top out is the giant quartz jug and the top out is easy.

V3 Variation: Stand start on the rounded sidepull at six feet and go straight up.


On the Pound Crack Boulder follow directions for The Blot (V2)


Pad and a spotter.

I'm confused as to what 'flake at 4 feet' you are supposed to start on for the v3 variation. The one like a foot right of the starting jug of the normal problem? Or one of the two further right? Both of which are closer to six feet off the ground, not four.

While I'm on the subject of confusion, I can't for the life of me figure out where the problem listed as 'The Thwart' in the guidebook is supposed to be located. Any thoughts on either of these? May 8, 2013

Christian, I did mean the one about 6 feet off the ground, it more of a large sidepull than a flake, not sure why I wrote four. I have fixed it, sorry for the confusion.

As for the Thwart, the only thing that makes sense to me is the arrow in the guidebook is wrong and it is actually supposed to be the v3 variation discussed above. But that is strictly a guess... May 8, 2013

Yah Matt, I wasn't referring to your description of the 'flake at 4 feet' as much as I was referring to the same description in the guidebook. I agree with you that six feet is more accurate and makes sense with the description and grade given.

And I also agree with your second answer. I had the same thought. 'The Thwart' is probably the v3 variation that we are talking about and the arrow simply points the wrong way.

You've managed to pick up on a number of the discrepancies in the guidebook and your corrections are much appreciated. Perhaps we should post 'The Thwart' up on this site with our suspected beta?

Thanks for all of the work you've put it on this site! May 8, 2013

I will post "The Thwart" sometime today.

Climbing and documenting boulders at Rumney has become a weird interest all of its own to me. Not many people use the info, glad you do! May 9, 2013
Matt... I also appreciate the efforts you have put into the site, I have come back to it often in trying to figure out some of these problems. Thanks! Sep 21, 2013
