5 years ago I pulled off the critical clipping hold right under the 3rd or the 4th bolt on the slab section. I think the route was rated 5.10B in the old book.

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: Hrm. I must've missed the 5.8 moves even though I was dead center for 1/2 the route and then trended right - which is what the chalk was indicating what everyone was doing anyways. The thing can't be harder than a 5.6.

Comments: According to Squamish Select update from May 2015 the route's name is "Robinís Route" and I think it has 8 bolts. Fun and technical

Comments: I think once it dries up and cleans up it is more of a 5.7 layback. The feet is really, really good.

Comments: Crux moves are way easier than Gold Digger, which is rated at 5.8+, so how could it be 5.9? Sailed right past it the first time no problem. Got back on it again recently and it's fun but pretty casual. If you are a number chaser this could be a great first 5.9. Can anyone think of a softer 5.9 at Rumney?

Comments: Yep I used an 70. You can easily use a 60 also if you belay from the top. The 70 I need to do 2 raps. The rope was not close to the ground from the top anchors to do it in one rap - from the looks of it I doubt an 80 will get you down in one rap.

Comments: Linked both pitches and belayed from the top of the 2nd pitch. It was around 150-160 feet and had to skip a few bolts on the 2nd pitch to keep the rope drag manageable (apline draws would've helped alot there). First pitch is one of the best 5.7s at Rumney - it just brings a smile to my face as I was climbing it and the 2nd pitch clocked in at 5.6 or so but the position is amazing - the arete is really airy and fun.

Comments: The second pitch is stellar - a few slab moves to a headwall and a pretty cool pull over the lip of the headwall. Did I spot some blueberry patches at the tree above the 1st pitch anchors? That bumps the climb another star for me during blueberry season :)

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.
