Comments: right on... I do similar but I start on 2 nice crimps inches apart that are a little hidden just left of the arête... I smear my right foot about 10 inches off the ground... left foot smear/edge where you described... I hit that quartz mound with right then left hand... left foot on the arête, right foot on a decent small lump on the smooth wall just right of the arête... I then reach out wide right in to the other corner for a good solid hold... foot on far right wall... left foot up to perc... more >>

Comments: Just barely missed the onsight yesterday... really nice technical climb... I managed to remove the old anchor junk on top and cleaned it up a tad but it seems like it will need upkeep on the top out... Didn't have energy left and fell at the top on my second go as well... can't wait to finish it up sometime soon :)

Comments: This thing will be haunting my dreams for a bit after falling on the last real hard move today exiting the upper corner to gain a jug. Motivation to get back after it soon armed with improved beta and rested muscles.

Comments: I FOUND IT!
I climbed this obscurity on self belay top rope, Being alone seems appropriate to the name of the climb :)
The line is actually pretty cool if a bit wandering. I think we are very used to direct lines through obstacles in sport climbing rather than finding paths around them as is common in trad climbing.

I was able to free the one point of aid at mid 5.11... If I were to call it I would say the all free climb is about 5.11b... Small sharp crimps and pretty serious core tension got ... more >>

Comments: I think matt bolted it but someone else got the FA... it's in the 2009 book...
And it looked like the hanger was missing to me but I'd have to get up close to see... that might just be a stub left over from bolting process

Comments: Maybe a better system of ropes off to the left side would do the trick. As well as fixing a couple of spots to be easier to pass...

Comments: This was fun to top rope but still serious at that... There are directional bolts you can gain from path of the righteous and I placed a cam as well in the face... Wear a helmet, there is a LOT Of loose stuff in the upper part of the chimney... The pins it had been said were rotten, I gave a few gentle tugs on a slung pin and It didn't break it disintegrated leaving me holding the sling...

As for retobolting, I'd like that but it would be so much work to make it safe I'm not sure it would see ... more >>

Comments: With intense effort of mind and body I managed to onsight this climb today for it's second ascent and it was also my last 5.12a at Rumney :)

REPORT: Brady has been trying to get me to climb this thing ever since he realized I had a taste for the obscure. He said it was the best 12a are Rumney. I had planned to climb every route in my range anyway but of course I was intrigued. The story goes two ways... He was so right! and a little bit not haha. The condition of the route is currently deplorab... more >>

Comments: Yeah we had our work cut out for us but then, that is likely the only reason the spot hadn't been developed yet. It was worth it for sure :)

Comments: awwww man, really sorry to hear this.
I do have a few more obscurities to pick off but I'm getting close. I was about to start up Bonsai Pipeline the other day (as you requested) when I decided the top looked a bit wet but I will get on it soon...
Good luck with the arthritis man... I hope you can get back to it soon...
