On Rumpus Wall: (5.10b / R /110ft / gear .5in to 2in, shares fixed belay with Tyro Rumpus) Climb the corner-ramp system to an overhanging block with big holds (5.10b / R). Thereís minimal protection until the block, making the flat, sandy landing, and low crux, much appreciated. At the block, protect well (1in to 1.75in) before pulling into the corner (5.10a) above. It sucks up gear (.5in to 1.75in) until the headwall, where pro becomes intermittent again. Tend left toward a friable, but decent gear slot (2in), before stepping right and intersecting with Tyroís upper headwall. Route variations: Bro Frontierís variations all use the same crux start (5.10b / R), but seem independent enough to warrant their own description. Bro Frontiers Left (5.10b / R /110ft / gear .5in to 2in, shares fixed belay with Tyro Rumpus) Climb to Broís overhang block before taking the vertical corner (5.9) left of the original line. It offers limited, but reasonable protection (.5in to 1.25in) and is bolstered by a ladder of positive, butter-knife edges, one right after another. Gain the headwall on a series of pinch-like holds where a bit of heads-up climbing rejoins the original line. Bro Frontiers Right (5.10b / s /110ft / gear .5in to 3in, shares fixed belay with Tyro Rumpus) Climb Broís overhang block before traversing around the corner, briefly intersecting with Tyro Rumpus, to the base of a long, right-angling crack. The crack (5.7) is more layback than jam. It terminates on the ledge system that doubles as Pioneer Brosí 2nd pitch, and assumes its poor rock, and anchor situation. (FA: J. Forester, S. Brown)
