Description 

Just right of Heaven and left of Mushroom Planet is a quartzy crack/feature that marks the start of a hard (V9/10) boulder problem. This leads to a roof and arete (kneebar useful) and the finish.

I belayed Ward on this way back. An amazing looking climb--power, continuity, and a good line.

Location 

left of the obvious overhanging crack, Journey to a Mushroom Planet

Protection 

5 bolts

Further info on this one if anyone is interested. This route has some of the hardest moves at Rumney, hold for a few like Jaws, The Fly, and Supernova. V10 boulder to the second bolt, with the hardest moves below the first bolt. The kneebar at the second bolt is ok for some, bad for others. From the kneebar, it's about 13a to the anchors, culminating in a weird V7-ish boulder. There are several videos online from which to obtain beta.
