A really cool climb that would get higher marks if it got a good scrubbing, the lichen is taking it back.

Stick clip the really high bolt (there is a ling clip at the cliff). Climb up on to the ledge. Zig and zag up the cliff as needed following the path of least resistance along the line of bolts. A few tricky spots will be overcome by using underclimgs and good footwork.
Keep the weight on your feet and have some fun.

Very interesting.


The far right route on the cliff. climb on to the ledge and follow bolts.


6 bolts to lower off bolts.

I really liked this route...the lichen and the good spacing on the bolts made it more of an adventure than your typical Rumney route. Thoughtful climbing and interesting moves. Not really sustained at the grade, though the inobvious moves coupled with the lichen would make this a little tough if 5.10 is your limit.

I can't decide if I should say "climb it!" or "stay away and leave it for me!" :)

This one is on the list for bolt replacement and a scrub.
