Description:

Sorry guys, I broke the first hold on this one today(10/11/03), which makes the start a 5.9 move, in my opinion. Can anyone confirm that? Great veiw, and Slightly slabby and great for lead practice if you stickclip the first bolt. ... I would just say that it is a 5.8+......

4 out of 5 stars Fun route

good exposure for Rumney. First move doesn't count. Soaking wet at the top.

4 out of 5 stars Harder than 5.8

I agree that the starting moves to the first clip are harder than 5.8. That hold broke off 6 years before the new 2009 book by Smith was published. Wonder why it is still 5.8 in there. Otherwise great climb.

5 out of 5 stars WOW!

Hello exposure! What a great climb! Hard move off the ground leads to slabby climbing above with an interesting final move to get the anchors. The rock right next to the anchors was wet which made the move getting to them more like 5.9. I also agree with the 5.9 start.
