Waimea, 10d - just plain beautiful and fun
Idiot's Deluxe, 10c? - very interesting huecos and roof jugs at the top. I just love this climb!

Oh, and Lonesome Dove! I even named my jewelry website after it! (Yes, this is shameless self promotion - please see my website!)

Hey Dave!

Here're my top 10:

1 - Millenium Falcon. Uses every trick in the book. (Main Cliff)
2 - Under Dog. Just pure fun. (Main Cliff)
3 - Waimea. Intricate climbing on vertical ridges. (Main Cliff)
4 - Centerpiece. Great route. Full value! The most pumped you'll ever get on a 10 at Rumney. This route will work you over!
5 - Jolt/Dolt. I dunno - one of 'em is supposed to be a 10. Do 'em both and decide for yourself.
6 - Armed and Dangerous and Off my Medication.
7 - Lonesome Dove. I can't think of a better way to describe it than "pretty climbing".
8 - Cannery Row. It's rated 5.11b, but is definitely a 5.10. Probably around 10a/b. Anyway, long and varied climbing through several different strata of rock. The style of climbing switches radically as you go.
9 - Debbie Does CPR is short but sweet, and would be 5.10 at the Gunks.

Okay, I only got to 8, but that should keep you busy a while.

And best cliff for 5.10 climbing: Main Cliff. I could easily list off 10 superb 5.10 routes just in the Main Cliff area.

Cheers!

GO

You were doing well until you gave the location for #3. But after that you stopped giving locations at all - maybe the location finder was on the fritz? Main Cliff is good for 10;s, so is Bonsai.

I can't believe no one mentioned Romancing the Stone 10c @ the 5.8 crag.

That's a good one! I hear the 'stone' fell out, though. How sad!

I really liked that climb as well. I need to get back to Rumney.

(I gotta say though, I don't remember there being a specific "Stone" in Romancing the Stone. I must not have been paying attention Laugh)

It was that wobbly chockstone up by the 3rd (?) bolt -- on first thought nice to hold onto after the stout opening moves, but then, on second thought... too bad if it has fallen out. The route is ultra-classic, though -- technical, traversy, and pumpy in turn. Gets my vote.

Luckily the Stone has made a new home with one of the main members of the Rumney Climbers Association.. so it will not be completely lost.

Peer Pressure... first sport route at rumney.. classic rumney.. fun moves on big holds

Med Dose Madness 10b line just right of Bonehead Roof.. . good crimpy vertical climbing to a funky gap through the finish roof. Super sharp so soft skinned folks need not apply.
