Comments: The "Half Premium" climbs the corner with the white streaks on the left side of this photo. This shows the crux section but there is another 10 feet of steep climbing on good holds to gain the ledge... clip anchors there or better yet keep climbing to the top of the "Full Premium"!

Comments: The Premium climbs the pair of corners in the center of this photo. The 12c first half ends at the obvious rest ledge but if you stop there you miss the best climbing. Tech and pump your way up the nice clean second corner and on to the top of the cliff to make sure you get the full value of this spectacular climb.

Comments: I finally took a run on the completed Rise Against this morning. Felt nice to not have to do any work on it. Other than a couple of small crumbles it is was in really good shape.

Over all I am very happy with the route! My only after thought is that I would have placed the last bolt before the roof about a foot to the right. This bolt was in the right spot until I had to remove a foothold that could have detached over time. If the bolt presents an issue I will replace it with a closer one, hit... more >>

Comments: Just a quick year and a half and the above concerns have been alleviated. Today I took one run up to hang draws and re-sus moves (and figure some new beta to get around the wet patches), took a 30 minute rest and sent it :)

side note: this was the last sport route I hadn't done on the Pru... Having checked thoroughly I can say this cliff is STACKED with quality climbs. Once the ravens move out I guess I have to climb "Losing My Life". That should be fun!

Comments: I spent another 3 hours cleaning this rig this morning and I think it is all ready to be enjoyed.

I had no idea the can of worms I was opening when I started this one. I had to remove a ton of unstable rock. Now I can say the upper half of the climb (the hard part) is pretty solid, The first 4 bolts or so has poor rock quality but is no harder than 5.5. I have done what I can with it but please climb with care. It came to a point where it seemed if I kept removing what ever I could I would end... more >>

Comments: Yeah, like heal in closer right? that's how i've been doing it lately... there is a little grippy patch. I still like the toe beta too though... such a great section on an amazing route.

Comments: Will. That sounds like more than enough gear. I normally use a single rack but you will likely find use for a couple of your doubles. Enjoy!

Comments: Last week I linked this up to the finish of Tsunami. Fun if you have done techno a bunch and want to mix it up.... and I absolutely love the second half of Tsunami... And the first half haha...

Comments: Yesterday I did the first half of this and finished on Techno... Fun if you know both routes well and want to mix things up. Bit run out as you head up the surf board on techno but that's not a hard spot relative to the rest of the climb.

Comments: It doesn't share anchors with anything so if I'm understanding your question I'd say left.

Comments: I've been working on this thing a bit lately and I guess I need to geek out for a sec. I had heard rumor of a foothold breaking years back which according to my source (Jay Knower? I forget.) made the crux compression section considerably more challenging. I figured I'd bring it up since I am personally finding this one to be harder than Cote D'azure just to the right but it seems no one has suggested an upgrade.

Notes:

Comments: Thanks Greg, I think I saw you climbing over there. I was psyched cause I haven't used the draws I put up as much as I had planned.

Comments: Out for a chilly January day at Main Cliff today. Grabbed a little beta video for anyone who is still puzzled by this technical piece of corner climbing perfection. For full value I did the down climb as well. A fun puzzle of its own.

Comments: they are about 20 feet right of the Mean Lean. Not sure who's they are but they are positioned directly up from the start anchor of the Mean Lean.

Comments: ok... ignore my above comment haha... Got back on it today and found plenty of difficulty.. I must have been having a pretty strong day last time... the reach to the gold fish hold gave me the most trouble this time (though I did figure out a way), The rest just felt like sustained difficulty. I don't do the last move how he does in the video. I stay more left and climb the last move on the face so I'm standing on the gold fish.

All in all seems like 13d... more >>

Comments: I finally sent this thing so I figure I will add to the discussion I started above.
I have climbed around 20 5.13s at rumney from 13a to 13d and this one took me more than twice the effort (time and # of tries) than any other. I wouldn't say it is harder than others of the grade but it is very style and strength specific. The only place to train for this kind of route at rumney is this cliff.

I am a climber that depends of technique above all else and the Monkey requi... more >>


Location: New Hampshire : *Cathedral Ledge : The Prow Area : Gypsy (5.9+ R)
By: lee hansche When: Nov 13, 2016

view comment >>
Comments: My thought on the R rating at this point is that pitch 2 is a full on R rating for the runout to the belay at 5.7, slabby... The 3rd pitch could go either way. Being tall, i was able to reach good pro and avoid the danger of falling on the sharp block but shorter climbers could have a sketch spot there. The upper corner is pg rated.
My updated 2 cents

Comments: My pleasure!
Honestly the quality of this one really surprised me. Once the thing cleans up I see no reason why it wont be considered pretty classic.
