Rumney Advice
« on: April 05, 2017, 08:58:26 PM »
Looks like Sunday will be a good day for Rumney.  I have only been there once (Hinterlands), and was thinking about the Main Cliff area.  Is this a bad idea for early April?  Ice still hanging around?  Will the Main Cliff area be too cold (i.e. north facing)?  Any advice for a better spot? 

I realize Rumney will most likely be busy on Sunday.

Depends on the grades you want.   The iron man wall at the main cliff has great routes from 10a to 13+ and if you want to be in the sun you can't get there too early.  Goes into the shade in the afternoon.   They got a bunch of snow last storm so expect some seepage.  For easier routes try the armed and dangerous area.  The new easy routes at the right end will be soaking wet.
