Topping out through the V at the top of Rumors aft...


Short blocky over-hanging cave like cliff found behind the historical Allenbrook house. It only has a hand full of routes but they are fun to toprope, and better than going to a gym(some might disagree). The routes are pumpy and sustained with few rests.The routes can be a little muddy after a heavy rain or during the off season due to low traffic. I've never seen or heard of anyone leading these routes, but anything is possible. There is also some bouldering on top of the cliff and south down the river.

Getting There 

From 400 north take exit 6 west to Roswell/Hwy 9. Head north on Roswell until you cross the river. After crossing the river start to look for a gravel driveway on your right. Pay your $3 parking pass and head downhill behind the house. The trail leads right to the top. Scramble down left or right.

Rumors goes on gear, I've actually seen someone go to the trouble and remember seeing someone else aid the thing. For a period of time, some of the routes left of Rumors were sport-bolted. By the time I'd arrived, early 90s, most (all?) of them were missing at least 1-2 hangers so people weren't leading them.

Why is Flaming Fingers not included? In my opinion it's one of the better lines at Allenbrook (which doesn't mean much).
