The Hinterlands

Big exposure awaits you at the Hinterlands, a moody and brooding area where a roc might roost or a giant could feel at home. Access requires a big hike up Rattlesnake Mountain. You’ll know you’re there when you see the menacing shark fin awaiting you; crane your neck back and take in the 80’ beast. This intimidating razor contains two of the most unique climbs at Rumney, Jolt (5.10a) and Dolt (5.10a), on either side of the flake. Routes range from 5.6 to 5.12c, with a mix of climbing styles. Many people will come just for Giant Man (5.12b/c), a steep route not for the faint of heart.
