A cool little trad pitch hidden in the open between two 5.12's. If you like finger cracks this one has your name on it as it is a perfect splitter layback finger crack leaning right. It's a bummer that it's a little too short. The crux is pulling over a small tricky roof low down on the route.
Climbing this route is a good way to set up a top rope on Rap Echo (5.12a/b).
Climb up under the small roof lowdown and place a couple pieces before tackling the crux pull over the roof (harder than it looks). Take a little rest and then enjoy sweet laybacking and finger-locking up the corner and if you close your eyes and dream you might believe its a hundred feet long but when you open your eyes the sweet section is still about 25 feet long. Oh well, you're at Rumney and you're climbing a sweet crack, what more can you expect?
Right between Rap Echo (5.12a/b) and the Skewer (5.12c). Look for the nice crack angling right.
Mostly small/finger-sized stuff but bring up to a red or yellow Camalot.

Nice series of Lily on the route, Lee. It is totally worth bringing the gear up for this route..very sweat finger locks in the corner.
