Is that run-out as huge as it looks? What is that, something like 50' fall potential?

Marc, they're using doubles. It's hard to see the second rope, which runs straight left from the leader into the bushy area and then down the corner.

Which is not to say the route is without runouts...

It looks liek it is climbers right of the rap line. Somewhere out past Swing C? That's the furthest right I have climbed out there, so if it past that, I'm done guessing.

Got it. On my monitor, I was only able to see the red rope.

Rob, it's just past Square Meal (on what I think we should call the Romano Wall). It goes up the right side of the alcove whose left side is New Frontier. The first pitch appears to be almost the same as New Frontier, and the second pitch is at least partly the same as Back to the Land Movement.

I think.

Looks like I should really check out Millbrook one of these days. Oh, and train a whole lot harder.

What's the rating? And was it another Romano route?

Here's what I think we should call the Romano Wall at Millbrook (although perhaps the entire cliff should be called Romanobrook). There are around a dozen routes in this picture, all but two of them done first (or first free) by Romano. I'd guess the average grade is mid-5.11.



Lesson in History, which is (at least) hard 10, goes up the middle of the wall under the big square-cut alcove at the top and exits right. New Frontier does more or less the same and exits left.
