60 meter rope needed. One of my favorite routes goes out a wild flake/arete with great exposure and great hands and feet the whole way DO THIS ROUTE! The best 5.10 at Rumney.

I loved this climb! Just as I was getting on the route the rain clouds were rolling in. I quickly cruised the first part of the climb. Once getting to the fin the climb changes drastically. Talk about feeling exposure! Going from a great stance out onto the fin is so exciting, and adrenaline is pumping. Once you get out onto the fin the remainder of the climb is casual. A light rain started just after clipping the chains. (i lucked out)
Great, great climb...totally recommend leading this over seconding or TRing.
Amazing route with solid/comfortable clipping locations. Definitely worth climbing more than once and a must do if you're up in the area and the route is open. Fantastic view from the top, worth sitting up there to just see what you can see.
