Ditto.
Glad I bailed, though, as both myself and the kiddo both were quite ill that weekend.

Nice TR, now I'm all psyched to hit up Rumney again next week. Have to see if my forearms can handle all that overhanging madness.

Sounds like you had a fun trip! Be glad that you were mostly able to avoid the weekend crowds. I fondly remember going there when there were only 5 or 6 established routes...

I can't believe you didn't like Dolt; it is my favorite 5.9 sport climb ever (and yes, it is a 5.9.)

Sorry! I am prepared to try it again, just in case it was my headache that affected my mood. Smile But it felt so awkward. And I really don't approve of reachy clips on 5.9.

Lack of crowds was definitely appreciated though...

Yes, be afraid, be very afraid! Angelic

It's too bad you never gave Jolt a try - it's one of my all time favorite routes I've ever climbed. And Giant Man, a 12b to the far right (climber's right) that goes out the monster overhanging wall is also a three star classic. Jug hauls on a nearly horizontal route for 35 feet. It's spectacular! Get it next time!

I definitely would have liked to meet you both. and little E., too. I've heard accounts of her Clip A Dee Doo Dah climb! I hope she is all better now. Next time...
