Rumney but Crumbly

Climb ledge, then zig-zag big holds to a bulge.  Then work around the left side and climb to a tree with a fixed anchor.  


It is directly to the left of El Kabong.  


It has 5-6 bolts, with a fixed anchor on a tree.

[Hide Comment] Climbed here the other day and found the route to be exciting for 5.9. However, Beware of the two good jugs after the first bolt. Both of them are loose and ready to break off if a gorilla pulls hard on them. The resulting fall would most likely be a deck, with the addition of broken holds... Also a good Idea to back up the anchor at the tree with another sling, just to be safe. May 13, 2019

[Hide Comment] Lots of loose rock as the name
implies. It looks like the first two bolts are fixed to *mostly* attached flakes Oct 8, 2020
