A really cool climb that would get higher marks if it got a good scrubbing, the lichen is taking it back.

Stick clip the really high bolt (there is a stick clip at the cliff). Climb up on to the ledge. Zig and zag up the cliff as needed following the path of least resistance along the line of bolts. A few tricky spots will be overcome by using underclings and good footwork.
Keep the weight on your feet and have some fun.

Very interesting.


The far right route on the cliff. climb on to the ledge and follow bolts.


6 bolts to lower off bolts.

I really liked this route...the lichen and the good spacing on the bolts made it more of an adventure than your typical Rumney route. Thoughtful climbing and interesting moves. Not really sustained at the grade, though the inobvious moves coupled with the lichen would make this a little tough if 5.10 is your limit.

This one is on the list for bolt replacement and a scrub.

Did not see the big stick clip around for the first bolt.
Could really use new bolts at two spots. One other bolt is a new expansion.
Could use a good scrubbing all over. A bit licheny, otherwise a fine climb. Good feet were left wanting through the cruxy section.
Probably too "sparsely bolted" to become super popular.
