Comments: Gear beta.

clip the Astroboy direct anchor. In the first horizontal put a 0.3BD, then a 0.4 BD. Clip the bolt. In the next horizontal, slot a grey metolius, then a 0.75 BD. clip the next two bolts. Then in a long horizontal jug, place a 0.4 BD. Just after place a purple metolius in a small alcove. Finally place a 0.5 BD in a jug on the left. Medium nuts could also be used in a nice vertical crack here. Voilà! All this in 60ft of climbing!

Comments: As an Acadian it is my duty to inform you guys on the history of the name. =)

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acadians

Now how many of you knew that Cajun comes from 'Cadien' that comes from 'Acadien'?

Jeff Butterfield failed to mention anything about the Acadians in the 'Area History' which I think is unfortunate. In his defense, Acadians never lived on the Island. Nevertheless, if you use Acadia, you should talk about Acadians in the history of your book.

Comments: A little history on the route as I have the FFA. The original way I did it had the crux at the start using the very crappy shallow mono. I used the arête at the top and graded it 5.11 a or b. I went on it onsight and just climbed it. After that many people found better beta at the crux to the right where you skip the mono beta altogether. This is where the downgrade comes from. I think the route is now a 5.10c. Not using the arête at the top would be ridiculous as it's right there. Eliminates ar... more >>

Comments: 6a+ is supposed to be 5.10b but I agree that this climb feels more like a 10a, maybe even 5.9+... Nice nonetheless

Comments: I climbed something like 10 routes at Sybleglades the day I was there and this was my favourite route of the day. Very good climbing!

Comments: I disagree with you. While I only climbed one 10a that was really sharp, I'd have to say that the 5.12's are beautiful, aesthetic climbs that aren't sharp at all. If you come here to climb 5.8,9,10s, then ya maybe it's not a good idea but the two or three 5.12s here are definitely worth it. Plus you get to swim and climb! bonus!

Comments: Perhaps, but I hate it when people solo in front of me. Maybe you don't. Good for you. Sure I've soloed before, but I've never gone soloing where I know people will be. Why would I do that? To prove myself? The fact that his guy is soloing a classic route in August in Rumney is what I find dumb. He knew people would be there. If you want to solo fine, but don't involve others. If others are at the crag then they will inexorably be involved if something bad was to happen.

Comments: Probably the best 12 I've climbed in the Province! This route has got a lot of different style in it. Balancy, slopey, powerful, compressed, reachy with a no hands rest in the middle. All this in 50ft of climbing. Beautiful!

Comments: I dunno why the first bolt is so high? It's not hard climbing to get to it but with loose rock in that wide crack a fall there is a possibility. The rest is better climbing than what I expected.

Comments: I know a few people that solo climb and I respect more the ones that do so ALONE. Soloing is a selfish pursuit so why bother going where there are people or cameras? I never want to be that guy at the bottom of the cliff when a soloist falls, would you?



I reiterate that soloing is dumb, but if you don't involve others (whether bystanders, other climbers, hikers, etc.)then at least you won't make others at the crag feel uncomfortable.

Comments: Rack from 0.3 to #2 with doubles in 0.4 and 0.75 will suffice. The #1 and #2 are for the gear anchor but other sizes would work (Lots of gear on top).

Medium to large nuts would also work in that crack.

Comments: I took the biggest whipper of my life on this route 40+ ft. Right below the 1st set of anchor, I was at the bolt but didn't have it clipped. If I ever get on this route again I'm bringing a cam or two!

Comments: It's now recommended to stick-clip the 2nd bolt on this route as the 1st bolt has been moved left to accomodate the original line
