Location: New Hampshire : *Rumney : Utopia Ledges (True Summit ... : Maze (5.5 R)

Comments: Whats with all the Bombed routes? No one is ever going to get on a route like these with all the 1 -4 star amazing lines at Rumney! I just don't see the need to add a route that is always dirty, covered in lichen or littered with loose holds. From my point of view, I don't contribute anything that I think people wont enjoy...

Cheers mate

Comments: To add a couple additional details about this area, Bathsheba beach is all coral, so as noted it is sharp at times but the aesthetic is very unique and your basically climbing what was once an under water reef! There are good varieties of corals and shell features embedded within much of the climbs which adds to the experience.

The area has a lot of potential and a crash pad or two greatly adds to the range of development. The sand has some give to it so even if all you have is shoes and chalk... more >>

Comments: This was some of the ice climbs we did in 2014. My hope is that 20126/2017 Ice is just as good or better!

Comments: Oh Crack Em Up, I hear the guide is available in print on request, is that true? I thought it was a unique and a good style addition for Round Pond, with good quality rock. A lot of options out there and I think this line and area could use a little attention...

Comments: So for anyone looking for a v2+ warmup worthy in its own right without awkward sit starts, try out this alternative **Try both versions - its a great location**

Comments: That might be it, I was after an epic day out and wanting some easy warm-downs (v4 or less in grade). So

Looks like an awkward spot for a sit down though. Also if anyone is climbing it with one pad and without a spotter (like myself) you'd want your pad down at the landing zone for when your on the higher sections of route. But I've be looking for a good mid-warm up route so I'll give it a look.

Comments: Yeah it uses the lip somewhat, there are some crimps on the face I also used but a pure face climb would go at a harder grade.

Comments: Troy -what is your thought on its grade with this missing (or greatly diminshed) hold. I'd say at least its solid V7 or V7+

This was a fairly key hold and while the sequence still goes albeit changed, the crimping is much more sustained.....

Comments: Sweet line for sure, the footwork technique made the route more unique and special for me. Awesome location! Thanks for the add.

Comments: Follow Blue line: Ball and Chain or Red line: Unchained (both V1). For a full value V1 follow Unchanined, good holds leading all the way to the apex of the boulder, nice and exposed.

Both are worth doing for sure, great warmup.

Comments: I am sorry to inform people that the second or third crimp is gone. Depending on your beta its the second or third hold from the sit start. There is now a credit card or slightly better crimp making the use of this same move more in the solid V7 grade without a doubt.

There is another crimp that is an alternate move, mostly positioning is just a bit different that also works. *See image in photo section...

Comments: If you are going to add routes or areas, give more information and sell us on getting out there and doing these routes! Although its not required I always try to provide at least one photo especially if its a three star line.

Comments: Round Pond has great variety and this line really adds to the area. The top out finish (at least for me) was essentially a hand/foot match on an amazing block/jug with a V-shaped groove --you throw a foot up into the groove and rock up. Worth doing for sure.

Comments: My friend and i climbed this route today, what a full value 5.10! I would recommend this one to anyone solid on 5.9 slab through the 5.10b/c grades.

There are a couple brief rests, some good feet (a few anyway) allow you to stop and route find because in the sun especially the overall route finding can be just a little tricky, climbs great though! There are some older bolts well up the route that I originally aimed for only to see a new set a bolts more left. Aside from a brief rest or two its... more >>

Comments: This climb is great! Sharp crimps and some of the holds (at least what I used) are tough to spot right away due to lichen. Solid V4 in my opinion. Side note: bring a spotter, a fall at the top wouldn't be fun.

Comments: This was done with different start holds beginning far right (staying low on the face) and trending left to the sloping rail. Omit the holds upper right of the face and stay left for a V4ish variation.

Comments: I don't want to get into a grade agruement (and yes I realize grades are just a guide) but I noticed Maxim is now 7- It is unfortunate that great lines like this get downed graded when they should remain a solid classic.

Could grade consensus that take place somehow (facilitated through this site) before it is graded officially? Or could MP promote more discussion about grade consensus? It would be good if we were able to focus more on accuracy. Then once graded with... more >>

Comments: There is a good extension to this route, its starts lower and works up and left to hit the same start holds. I am not sure of the grade but (SDS) Crimp Problem feels easier than this variation to me...

This boulder is awesome and sees little traffic. I hope to make it out here this season with a brush and explore.

Comments: You can sit or sqaut to start this also, is mabye one grade harder and more full value. The moves down low lead nicely into the upper onegGit!

Go for it!
