Location: NH : Rumney : Main Cliff Right : Tipping Point (5.8)

Comments: This is a really enjoyable climb. The second pitch is great - it's relatively short but has a fun slab section that brings you to the cruxy steep moves that guard the anchors.

Comments: not sure i trust the photo credit... looks like something scanned out of a climbing textbook to me.

Comments: The well-chalked lefthand sidepull knob near the start of this route (above and to the left of the first bolt) was flexing quite a bit yesterday. I'd suggest treading very lightly if you choose to use it, especially as a foot; it's not in a spot where you'd want to be surprised by a broken hold.

It might be secure enough to last a while (I'm not great at assessing this sort of stuff), but to the untrained eye it looked pretty iffy. And at any rate, the route goes fine without it, ... more >>

Comments: Was it one of crimps to the left of the bolt above the roof (where the Neptune linkup meets Venus), or one of the holds near the next bolt? A friend and I were on it Sunday and didn't notice anything broken, and it felt about the same to me as it did two weeks ago (really hard).

Comments: i agree with the description and comments - the route looks pretty casual from the ground, but it can get desperate in a hurry up top, especially with the lichen overgrowth that makes it tough to find holds. very tricky to onsight.

i stayed to the right at the third bolt after pawing around on the left side for a bit - it felt about 10d/11a the way i did it, but i would not be surprised to learn that i missed some marginally better holds out left.

Comments: FYI, this route still only has one anchor, and it's a spinner (as is the bolt below it).

edit: apparently this has been fixed. a big thank you to the person responsible for putting in the time and effort to make this route safe!

Comments: Did I overlook a bolt in the middle section? I only counted 8 to the anchor, and there was a pretty sizable runout on the easier ground after the first chimney.

Comments: The giant flake is pretty sketchy right now, and should definitely be avoided.
