Rumney Ice Climbing 12/29

December 29, 2009 § Leave a comment



Emily and I had a fun day today at Rumney…just the ticket when the strong northwest winds blow! We were able to climb Centerfold and The Cave Route, as well as a few other pitches. The ice had been hit hard by Sunday’s thaw, and there was still a lot of water running behind the hollow shells that made up these routes. Selsen Blue was running with water despite single digit temps in the afternoon. Rumney routes are not “in” at the moment, but after a few more days of cold they may be.
