Description 

Two crux overhangs guard the chains on this exciting climb. Easy climbing gets you to the first overhang where interesting beta or a well-placed dyno gains a jug and a mantle gets you to a nice ledge. The next overhang is well protected and so tricky (or down right hard). I don't know if I have the right beta yet.but work your way through the roof to a tricky and often sandy top out.

It's really just 2 boulder problems on top of each other, but hey we are at Rumney, is that so rare?


Location 

Basically in the middle of the cliff...Just right of the trad route, Starship Enterprise (5.9+).


Protection 

4 bolts to LO.

There is a bolt anchor. Apparently (according to the ARI section in the back of climbing magazine), Tim Kemple sr finished her up one day after the forest fire and the old anchor was burned! So he replaced it. Thanks Tim.
