Sport Bouldering...

The rain stopped here long enough to take a trip up to Rumney.  The main objective was to warm up on some of the boulders below the cliff, then try to finish off this 8c route called Super Nova.  Super Nova is only 4 bolts long and tackles an impeccable face of crimps and under-cuts.  It's one of the best climbs I've done.  I put some work into it years back and this time around I managed to finish it off quickly.  My friend Caroline Treadway was with us taking pictures and sent me the one below, thanks Caroline.

Here is a video of  Nikki climbing an unnamed V6 in Ct. and me on Satan's Choice, V11, at Rumney.  Satan's Choice is another one of my favorites.  I remember trying this problem years ago as well.  This time around I sent first try.
