A Week With Pete, what a great easy line.
The guidebook rates this 5.2, but the top moves might be more like 5.4.
Steep slab with big holds until 5/6th of the way up where the crux and one or two climbing moves await.
Great first lead for the less than fit beginner that wants practice clipping bolts and equalizing bolts for an anchor.
Good one to put the parents/older relatives on.
On right wall of left facing obivous corner you can see from parking lot.
4 Bolts to Anchor

i love this route! when ever i take beginers to rumney this is the route i basicly solo while i teach them how to lead belay... i say solo cuz you dont know if your going to get a catch when you look down and have to utter the phrase "oh junk! no dont do that!"

The quick clips on top of this are worn through. There was a biner on it today that I replaced with 2 screw links. I left them loose enough to just drop your rope into. I however wasnt able to clean the old quickies off.

Really fun as a first route of the day, and exactly what you need to get into the climbing mindset while you're still half-asleep after leaving the house at 6:30. Great route, because the crack section at the top gives some character to the climb but is still very easy. The older, worn away quick-clips are still up there, but there are now also two new ones. Even these new ones are starting to show a slight groove, but they are still very useable.

Good to teach someone to lead belay if you're the leader, since the holds are juggy. Also a good first lead.
