Comments: I was cleaning this last November, and when it got buried by winter for 5 or 6 months I had to leave it in a rough state. The top half was all set but the first 40 feet was looking nasty. I put another half day in to cleaning the beginning last week and it's almost done. The only section that is still sketchy is a small bit in the middle. I didn't dare mess with this section for fear of knocking rocks and dirt down on to folks below jolt. In about a week o... more >>

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

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.

Comments: Sending a route is a great feeling, sending a cliff is even better! today I finished sending all of Crow's Nest by climbing Nantucket Sleigh Ride :) This cliff has a few hard eggs to crack Keel Hauled 5.12c, Nantucket Sleigh Ride 5.12c, Walk the Plank 5.11b and a few others are tricky and straight up difficult in the grade.

Comments: Nice description. It gets the point across very well and I agree with it all.

The most intense section is pretty brief but the intro and outro sections are tough in their own right. I found the crux beta to be perplexing as well as powerful. A few years ago I had tried it and was unable to figure the beta, I ended up throwing my hands up and walking away... Today with good conditions and a little more energy I figured it out and pulled it off... Worth doing, It involved a lot of interesting tr... more >>
