Comments: It's a hard one to grade as the bottom slab is moderate, the crux section is hard but only like 6 poppy hand movements and the top is picturesque but pretty straightforward. The crux is harder than anything on benchmark 12c's like Venus/Flying Monkeys but it's so short 12c is probably right.

Comments: Definitely worth doing. Slab then roof then arete. What's not to like? Oh yeah. All the lichen - hopefully that'll clean up if people get on it.

Comments: Lee I have some 6' beta for those moves from the jug I'm happy with if you want. More moves but I think somewhat less crimpy and reachy than what Brian N. does in the video. Let me know via PM.

Comments: I like Iron Butterfly. And I like this route. Another good but less popular one- shady in summer in the afternoon too. More d than c due to what (I think) was a hold breaking above the mantle ledge? Or maybe it always just a terrible crimp.

Comments: Not many people do this route -- possibly b/c of the spaced bolts and scary slightly lichen-y slabs.

I think this works to make it reasonable:

A short draw on the last bolt of the crack makes it easier to avoid foot entanglement as you enter the first slab.

A long sling with a short draw on the second slab bolt (so it's just hanging over the edge) means you can clip it from the top of the crack to protect the first slab and also the rope won't rub on the edge if you fall as you do the se... more >>

Comments: Unfortunately the perfect little three finger incut RH crimp at the top deadpoint crux of Neptune (and Chippa) broke off Aug 25. Forensic analysis by the local rock doctors determine that it can't really be repaired since the hold is so small. The move has been done since the breakage short person's way (little harder) and tall way (reportedly quite a bit harder but doable).

Comments: FYI - The crimp some people match above the 3rd (i think) draw exploded yesterday mid-match by strong Quebecois Alex. He said it is still doable but harder and more body tension-y as you can use it but can't really match anymore. I've got the pieces if anyone wants them for the Rumney hold museum or forensic reconstruction or a terrible paperweight or anything. Repair might be possible but would be very hard I would think b/c of the many pieces.

I have not been on this in a long long time. How much is fixed these days? I.e., how light was yr rack? Thanks.
