My personal favorite, Bonsai brims with classic 5.10s and 5.12s that offer steep climbing with big holds (my jam!). There is a lot of history here, the pumpy corner, Peer Pressure (5.10d), was Rumney’s first sport route, and Kundalini (5.12d), was the area’s first 5.13 (though it was later downgraded). The rock looks magnificent with its flakes and ledges of greys, oranges, and greens. If you’re keen on jumping into 5.12, Social Outcast, with its unmistakable arete, is a popular first route for the grade, with fun moves, big holds, and clean falls. For the crushers, Bonsai is a good warm up for harder routes at nearby Waimea.
