see there really is a route there... photo by Kevi...


Really good toprope problem if you are getting bored of Waimea or for those who like to bring their trad gear on a field trip to Rumney sometimes it can be a boldish lead. I think the biggest factor in the boldness is the fragile looking rock I felt like some of the placements down low would break the rock if you whipped on them. But overall the gear is tricky and maybe suspect but not missing persay.

Climb up between the starts of Waimea and Long Board and head straight up the super featured rock above makeing fun big moves and placing gear that you might want to have pre-picked unless you like soloing 5.10d. then you meet up with the crack that is the finish to Waimea the Weenie Way and you get good gear and one or two more hard moves to the easy top section.


The face right of Waimea.


Normal rack i suggest figuring gear before the lead.

Did this thing on gear, and got super sketched out.

Definitely suggest a TR.

I rehearsed it a bit before leading and I found it to be fun. Onsight would make it spooky O_o
