Description

The first time I visited Summit Cliff I climbed Where the wild Things Are 5.7. It is an enjoyable romp through interesting features on good holds until you get to a nice ledge... Where it just stops below a beautiful, delicately featured, vertical wall. It makes sense to stop the 5.7 there but the steeper thinner wall above was too tempting. I knew at some point I would have to come back to bolt it if someone else didn't do it first. I finally got around to it and it didn't disappoint.

From the anchor of WTWTA launch in to a vertical to slightly inverted wall and dance your way through hidden in-cut edges and fancy footwork while trying to stave off the building pump. Just when you think it will never let up you find the biggest jug you could imagine on such a wall. Grab a good shake and tackle the delicate finish. It is possible to reach right in the last bit and use a part of the chimney. I like it better without the stemming but its your route now <3

Location

This is an extension of Where the Wild Things Are so you could have to clip a lot of bolts and pick up some rope drag if you do both lines together.

The way I do it is to start from the Buddha Ledge (you can scramble up through a tunnel to get there) anchor to the tree and launch in to the second half of WTWTA from there. This way you clip 4 bolts on that route and the 7 on Rumpus, The line is straight and drag is non-existent.

Protection

This route has 7 bolts and 2 anchors. That is without considering Where the Wild Things Are's bolts.

If you do it as described above it takes 13 draws including anchors.
