Top of the 3rd pitch at the good ledge. You can see the last bolt before the anchor on the left. It's a traverse pitch that is technical but well protected.

From my perspective belaying the 2nd at the anchors the most obvious line is climber's right of the bolted line around the dark streak.

Comments: First time back on the route since the new start. Kudos for the cleanup! The first bolt is in a great position now and protects the move! Solid in the 9+ range now with the crux being the starting move. I actually like this router even more now. Definitely one of the best 5.9s at Rumney.

Comments: Watch out for the sap at the anchors. There is a lot of it and we got it on our rope. Yuck.

Comments: I don't think it is the left most route anymore. There is another one to the left of it that goes at around 5.6 w/crux on the 2nd bolt. It's a bulge that is best done with a high left foot mantle.

Comments: I think this is the best route at the crag. Just fun with monster jugs and very flowy movement.

Comments: Don't want to spoil it for people but it climbs easier than it looks. Too bad the fog rolled in so it was cold and damp when I tried the onsight. If you are a gym climber in the 10d/11a range you can comfortably lead through the crux of this one.

Comments: Pitch 3 variation is the way to go - easy traverse with phenomenal exposure for some memorable 5.5ish moves.

There is another 3rd pitch variation - from the bolt swing right to stay on the west side of the spire. Instead of traversing the horizontal go straight up the arete. Wonderful and airy but the climbing is really reasonable at around 5.8 (+? Not sure) or so. Fantastic way to finish the climb and it felt super exposed in that position as my left hand was grabbing the arete the whole ... more >>

Comments: Don't be fooled by S. Neoh's comments. I onsighted this but compared to the other benchmark 10a's at Rumney such as Masterpiece and Underdog this is definitely harder. I saw the moves left around the bulge but I went straight up to be more in line with the traditional line and that definitely goes at 10c - harder than Polly Purbred but easier than M. Falcon. So overall I split the difference and would call it 10 b/c. I personally think move to the chains from the last bolt is tricky too ... more >>

Comments: For anyone who is considering this route you have to do the "whole" route - the first part is fine but it isn't that memorable but what makes this line a super classic is the whole line all the up through the V-slot and topping out of Orange Crush. As for projecting it - since I just finish projecting it I would say it's safe as long as the 3rd bolt is clipped - right before the first crux.

I have tried harder lines at Rumney but so far in the 11s only Buried Treasure and this route bring a ... more >>

Comments: I can't imagine a more exposed climb at Rumney at the grade. Definitely amazing and one of the best 5.9's at Rumney! Sooo airy. The uncling block move is not to be under estimated and I think is now the crux of the rout (not the overhand jug haul of a start). Must do in the fall!

Comments: Definitely not 10A. The reachy move can be skipped by going left - which is what almost everybody does these days. Traverse back to a blind reach above the bolt isn't even that bad if one is calm because the feet is there and can lean into the wall pretty well.
