This is a great first lead for some one just learning the mechanics of sport climbing with comfortable stances to clip from and an opportunity to learn how to run the rope through the anchor to retrieve your draws. The route follows a series of steps up the arete to a few face moves at the top.
Great beginner fun. May be wet sometimes.
The low-angled arete to the right of Apocalypse Later (5.11c).
4 bolts to a two bolt anchor.

Even though it had been dry for days (and weeks) prior, it was still kinda yucky. Blocky. Not my favorite Rumney climb!

I agree it is not the greatest climb, but pg 13? I could have sworn this climb is super protected.

If only this was dry all the time, it would be a really good route. If it did stay dry it would deserve as much attention as A Week With Pete at the Parking Lot Wall but due to it's almost constant wetness it does not get the credit it deserves. Although even in very wet conditions it is enjoyable.
