Angle out right through the low roof. Grab the small tree to top out. It is short, but it might be the steepest 9 in Rumney.


Low roof up and left of Cozendstone.


3 bolts to LO

IMHO, steepest .10 at Rumney. Maybe my short statue influenced my grading. I was surprised by the high crux during onsight attempt and fell off. Got serious and figured out the most efficient Beta including handjam, huge undercling sidepull deep in the dirty crack, and hip scum near the top. Still felt .10; harder than Bullwinkle Goes Ballistic and Masterpiece. For me, comparable in difficulty to Jugline. Jul 23, 2017
