Grade Route

Start in the low-angle corner and climb the easy face just to the corner's left, finishing with a stem across below the anchors. (A bit run-out at the top for a 5.4 leader.)

FA: Jim Shimberg, 2003

FA: Jim Shimberg (re-bolted version)

FA: Glen Cilley (original route version: Attack of Life)

This route no longer really exists -- it was originally a mixed bolt & trad route that has been re-bolted and straightened out by Jim Shimberg, and is now the route "Hippos on Parade".

Ward Smith's guide book (2009), which looks to be the book to use at Rumney (as of spring 2012), has no mention of a route with this name anywhere at Rumney, and nothing at this or close grade in the Meadows with a name at all similar.

FA: Glen Cilley

FA: Tom Armstrong

FA: Matt Keefe

Route starts by traversing in from the right towards the first bolt, rather than pulling directly from below. (Direct start is in the 5.10-5.11 range depending on how direct.)

FA: Bradely White

Start up some un-protected but easy slab to the left-leaning flake and follow the flake to bolted anchors. Generally well-protected except the start.

A wandering route that is not climbed anymore.

Now a sport route
