Social Promotion

5.12d, Sport, 75 ft,  Avg: 0 from 1 vote
FA: bolted by Matt Keefe, FA Jon LaValee 7/2005
New Hampshire > Rumney > Bonsai


Start on a Slice of Life, after the fourth (maybe fifth?) follow an even steeper and more intimidating line out right up the prow/roof to separate anchors. This seldom done route looks very stout. Sending it may result in social promotion (at least for a short while).


The prow above a Slice of Life, following bolts breaking right towards anchors.


Bolts, it looks like lobbing off the end would be a big, but very airy fall.

[Hide Comment] I think Matt Keefe did the FA. Not sure of the year. Oct 20, 2015

[Hide Comment] Is there still a missing hanger on that one? Oct 20, 2015

[Hide Comment] They look like glue-ins from the ground, I think there is just a decent distance between two of the bolts. Oct 21, 2015

[Hide Comment] I think matt bolted it but someone else got the FA... it's in the 2009 book...
And it looked like the hanger was missing to me but I'd have to get up close to see... that might just be a stub left over from bolting process Oct 21, 2015

[Hide Comment] You are right, Lee. Jon LaVallee got the FA 7/05. I should have noticed before though that the name is incorrect. This describes Social Promotion. Astral Projection Is the John Mallery route that starts up India and then finishes up the arete to the right, also 12d Oct 21, 2015

[Hide Comment] Took a look at this today, and the last bolt is missing its hanger, so beware. May 27, 2016
