the trick is to hit it in the off season when everyone else is climbing at the gym... it stays warm all year as long as its sunny...

on main cliff the routes are so good that waiting is worth it, it is annoying at best but when you get on the classics here you remember why you waited...

There are plenty of routes to go around at rumney... i think its funny how people stand in line for the "classics" when there are great routes right around the corner waiting to be done...

that being said i do love a good choss pile :)

On weekends when the weather's bad, the consistently dry cliffs (like Main Cliff) tend to get a bit crowded. I would say that this particular scene is more the exception than the rule. But then again, if you're looking for a chossy wilderness experience, then I'd suggest going elsewhere.

I rarely ever go to rumney on weekends so i know little of the weekend warrior scene but this is 5 min from the parking lot, a 20 minute hike (short) will get you to your own private crag... Prudential, Asylum, and Yellow Knife Buttress are all crags with quality routes of similar grades as the ones in this picture that i never see anyone at...

I do understand bitterness though, i once was stuck behind such a slow party on Thin Air at Cathedral that i fell asleep for an hour on a ledge and they still weren't done with the pitch above us... i didn't repeat that route again for a couple years...

Where ever you climb... have fun and dont wait in line...
