Sean came to Rumney for a second time. This time was a check in to see if this was a sport he wants to pursue. Wenesday was a hot steamy day so we started in the shade of the forest at the 5.8 crag. A couple of routes were climbed quickly and we decided to climb at Jimmy Cliff for the views and two routes the Nuthatch 5.7 and a quick climb of the Clippidy Do Da. The check in for Sean included a variety of types of climbs which ranged from cracks, to a chimney, to delicate face routes and the multi pitch slab route. Our goal was becoming achieved – a well rounded day at the Rumney rocks area.
By mid day we decided to recharge so hiked out a took a short drive to the Common Cafe. A short lunch break with a well deserved ice coffee booted us up for the afternoon session at the Meadows Area.
The day was very productive and we climbed 8 pitches on a variety of cliffs. Sean was excited to get back into the sport. It’s now time to train back home in the local gym. The weekend adventures may become frequent activities refreshing the mind and body and Sean want to be ready to climb!
Thanks sean for a fun day at Rumney Rocks. I hope we climb again soon.
