Rumney, Jimmy Cliff new routes?
« on: April 01, 2007, 08:22:45 PM »

Atleast newer than the guidebook.  What are the bolted lines in the alcove to the left of Drilling for Dollars?  There are 4 routes to the right of the 5.5 dirty hand crack, two of which we climbed today and enjoyed.

I think there is one more than listed on the rc.com link.  Starting from the corner there is a 9 then two routes that have very close starts then a completly independent 7 at the end of the cliff...I think.  The ones in the middle with the similar start are both 6 or 7.  Hope that is helpful.

Here's the draft for that area from the new guidebook (yes, still in progress).  Comments/revisions are welcome.

Ward




11.  Things I Never Learned (5.9) *
6 bolts to LO.   All eyebolts. A tricky boulder problem start (stick-clip helpful), then move right with difficulty to easier face climbing.
 FA: Dave Quinn, 7/04

12.  Things You Should Have Learned in Kindergarten (5.5) **
7 bolts to LO. Aim for the white quartz below the pine tree.  Great climbing at the grade, with beautiful rock.
  FA: Ed Esmond, 5/04

13.   Piece of Cake (5.4) *
9 bolts to LO. Climb a low flake (crux) then up fun climbing above.
 FA: Chris Smith, 6/04

14.  Teacher,s Pet (5.7+)
7 bolts to LO.  Start with hard moves up a shallow groove (stick clip if 5.7 is your limit), then continue on very easy ground.
 FA: Christine Callaghan, 7/04

Any thoughts on when we might see that book Ward?  Mine is held together with a rubber band and has all kinds of hand written notes all over the place.  I would love to replace it.

Thanks,
Kevin

It will be out this year, don't know when for sure as I would like to incorporate the new forest service management plan in it.

Did your binding fall apart? If so, you were entitled to a free replacement as the first batch was defective.

Yea the binding is completly trashed...like I said the whole thing is only held together with a rubber band.  I heard about the replacment but never knew where to do that.  Good luck with the book...there is so much new stuff out there now it will be great to have an updated copy.
