Zach enjoying himself on this easy crack


This route is much fun, sit start on a jug at the base of the crack just to the left of the crack, then move up with the obvious crack. this is a great place to work on different techniques, because the crack is so variable there are places for finger lock and I have even found one hand jam. The tree is off limits but of course if you are nervous about the heights, grab the tree, and have fun. This route fun to make eliminate problem on with your friends or even an outdoor game of add-on. The route can be down climbed if you don't want to jump off the step wall to the left of this route. Normally I jump off from right above Ahab Calling where the wall is the lowest, if you do decide to jump off I suggest placing a crash pad on the ground.

Also this crack could be used to teach about placing trad gear.


On the road side of the Barn Door Boulder, just left of the tree.

I feel like this is one of the only truly easy boulder problems at Rumney (either location). Most of the 1's are hard and there aren't many other 0's...
