This link up is quite contrived and not all that much fun (though a "bad" climb is much better than no climb at all).... It does however have a purpose....
Climb this route if:
1: Your sporty, projecting friends insist on working the hard stuff at Monsters even if you aren't ready for that sort of thing....
2: You really need to warm up slow for a red point of one of the tough climbs here (though you might be better off climbing one of the easier 5.11s)....
3: If you are like me and your goal is to climb every route at Rumney regardless of grade or quality....

Start as for Abominable Snowman (5.11b) and move left on an obvious ledge till the end of it where you head straight up the second half of Source of Madness (5.10d).... This is the crux, and it always seems hard for the grade for me or I'm missing a very important piece of beta....

If you decide to climb it, do me a favor and enjoy it....


Traverses right to left on the obvious, midway ledge on the left side of the crag....


6 bolts to quick clips.

Tried to climb this in the dark with no head lamp, it turned out I was on Little Demon. I guess it was dark!

The top out isn't that bad if you know the right beta. Otherwise, it's pretty heinous for a 10c. (The hardest part of the route is clipping the last bolt. It's kind of a go-for-it, deadpoint-clip. I had to get Ian to hang the draw for me.)
