4 out of 5 stars Good warmup

My first route of the trip. Sustained 5.8 (Actually more like a 5.9) Be sure you are solid at the grade. Two cruxy sections one in the middle and one almost at the top
Excellent climb. I liked this one better than Lonsome Dove.

4 out of 5 stars Best 5.8 at Rumney

Variety of climbing techniques, awesome rock, incredible view. Definitely a 5.8+ as in the guidebook though, maybe even a 5.9 - my feet came off in the "tricky layback section" described in the guidebook. Climb from the bottom, don't skip the start!
