So if this thing wasn't FILTHY! it would earn both stars I gave it. The moves really are pretty cool and would be really fun I didn't have to dig for the holds in lichen and moss. I'll post here if i find the time to scrub it some day.

The first half is much harder than the top.

Climb up low angle crimping to a ledge out right. Make hard moves past a couple bolts to a challenging mantel and a good rest. Move out left in to super fun delicate climbing if you can find the holds in the moss and lichen. These last hard moves gain a relatively clean moderate finger crack. and on to the anchors.


When you get to the crag via the fixed rope you are standing in front of a face with two bolted routes. For this climb move around the corner to the left and look for a line of eye bolts.


8 bolts to ring anchors.

Aparently, Lee didn't find the time to scrub it. It is in a nasty state of lichen. I will also try to give it a scrub one day... Aug 18, 2014

Easily the dirtiest and most lichen covered 5.10 at Rumney. Hands down. Avoid. Nov 1, 2015

I was lucky to have climbed this when it was new and it was quite decent at the time, though even then it could have used a little more scrubbing. It goes to show that at Rumney if you are only going to half clean something you almost shouldn't bother. It will grow back almost instantly. At least if it is really scrubbed it will have a chance to get a following enough to keep it clean. You have got to get the actual roots of the lichen off and not just break the outer parts.

When Ian and I did this one (summer 2017), we could have used a power washer for sure. If you plan to be at Summit Cliff, bring a wire brush to rehabilitate this pretty good line. Aug 1, 2017
