Nice 5.9 line, in between the two small roofs at the bottom of Rupley Tower D, all the way to the top.

Because of a broken hold, there is one hard move, which by the opinion of the guide-book makes it a 5.11, but in my opinion the move is not that hard.


To the left of the normal route (R4) on the east-face, between two small roofs. Belaying is possible in a small clearing in the bushes.
Two rappels (60m) are needed to get down. The best way to go is to rappel to the ledge just below the summit. Between the two blocks there is an anchor with a ring for the second rappel.


Bolted (15), with fixed anchor.

"Mike [Strassman] was best known for directing the 1988 video Moving Over Stone... the second-ever climbing video to hit the market. It went on to become the best-selling “rock video” of all time."


I believe Scott Ayers also had a hand in the production but I am not positive on that point. Nov 21, 2013

Moving Over Stone #2 says "Photography - Scott Ayers" in the credits at end. I guess what would be called "cinematography" these days? Not sure about #1. Nov 22, 2013
