Description

The best moderate highball in Leavenworth. Start low, standing, on good holds. Power through the hardest moves up and left, through the crack system, and establish on big jugs at 10 feet. Psych yourself up, and finish up and left around the corner. This is a proud climb.

The finish straight up through the sloper on the even-taller face is an impossibly amazing v10 variant - Cremation of Care.

Protection

Depends on your comfort level. The hardest moves are near the ground, and you'll want maybe 2 good pads for that. When you get high, you're less likely to fall, but the landing is stepped, and it's tall as shit. So if you wanted to be able to bail or fall, you'd want another 3 big pads, probably.

Location

Around the corner to the right and uphill from The Physical. Geographically, this is the central line in Upper Forestland. Look for a large, left leaning crack that finishes at about 20 feet over a stepped landing.

This is called the Ruminator for a reason. Hit the prominent horn and you have time to think about how high up you are. Friends, pads, and padded friends are important to have down below.

I suggest a V6 rating for the height and think it is more accurate for short people. I think it also is listed as a V6 in one of the guide books. Oct 21, 2013
