Comments: The start is a tricky bouldering move, but once you get it, the rest of the route is good. The last part of the route was a bit tough, not sure if it's the crux. Did a super high hand-foot match to get to the anchors, it might be different for someone who's taller with a longer reach.

Comments: A fun, challenging and interesting 5.10a. I'm more of a 5.9 climber, but this 5.10a was a really great route to get on if you're progressing to 5.10s. Start from lower left to right through a light overhang section with good jugs. It gets a bit pumpy near the middle section of the overhang, so positioning your feet is important. After the overhang section, the climb isn't as difficult to figure out. Definitely going work this route next time I drop by Rumney in the future.

Comments: I climbed over the boulder where there's a big scary hole, but I think I was suppose to start from the base of the boulder to make my way up to the first bolt. It was difficult to clip the second last draw that's right before the blueberry bush. Didn't have enough reach. That's probably the crux of the route. Overall, good route (5.6ish), and amazing view when you reach the very top of the climb.

Comments: My first 5.9 redpoint lead at Rumney. There's a pretty cool traverse section in the beginning after the first clip. Citrasolve 5.10c (on right of Orange Crush) shares the same first clip as Orange Crush. A decent route, will definitely climb it again on my next visit to Rumney. :)
