Shares the start with Dino-soar and splits left following a yellow band of rock out the steepness.

Starts just right of the small ledge at the top of the slab with the 2 glue-in belay anchors. Make your way through a short bouldery sequence moving out right and over a bulge followed by a good rest before entering the business.

Climb a good flake to thin moves to an ok rest. Go past a few bouldery moves to a 2 finger slot and try to mantle the lip to a sloppey move up top. Rest in the alcove. Don't puke. Keep it together and move left to the anchors.


Below Orangahang, right of Tin Man, left of Dyno-soar

This is one of my favorite climbs at Rumney.

Someone broke one of the starting jugs off the ledge so that you can get around the corner. Makes the start of Lions, Tigers, Bears and Flying Monkeys a little more tricky and pumpy. The broken hold is stashed off the left under Orangahang/Tin Man start.
