one of my favorite moves at Rumney

Note: New route moratorium area MORE INFO >>>


The first, noteworthy route as you hike in to the Pulse area, a wall with an obvious crack system and a few bolts on the right side.
Toy Story is short and fun and only requires a small rack, so why not take a lap on it.

Start on the right side climbing a crack up and to the right eventually gaining a horizontal. From here, a big, fun move reaches a ledge and a final mantel to a good stance and an anchor to the left.

Brief but fun.

I really enjoyed this climb. Big holds, good gear to a really fun mantle at the top!

This is now one of my favorite climbs! Loved the move right before the mantle. I did feel like this was very easy for the grade though, but maybe I was just having a good day.

looking to possibly break into 5.9 on trad. im just curious though, is this a legit trad route or more of a highballish boulder route that you could do on gear? doesn't seem very long

The ground slopes a little away from the cliff so the top out is higher than first impression. For 5.9 trad at Rumney, I think Space Shuttle takes top spot, then maybe Yoda / Ryobi on gear instead of the bolts, ala Lee.
