Description 

Climb the corner laying it back till you can gain good stemming this is a tricky section that is tough to onsight. You will gain a nice rest as the arch leans left.reach right to clip a bolt and make a reachy (or thin) move right out of the overlap. Technical Climbing will get you out right to a corner and another rest. Climb the corner using a fingerlock and a few awkward holds. Mantel the ledge and clip the quick clips to the left.

I give the climb 4 stars due to its beautiful flow and interesting moves in a place that is more wild and peaceful than many crags at Rumney. I will be back to climb it many times.


Location 

On the front face of the cliff, there is a prominent, left-leaning arch that usually seeps at the bottom.


Protection 

5 bolts to anchor.

Do this route. The anchors have chaines, not quick clips.
