Description

A few minutes beyond the majority of the routes at Serenity, the two routes at The Rim are never-the-less worth the short hike. The rock is much less pocketed than the rest of the area and the climbing is a bit more technical and balancy than elsewhere.

The route area is easily identifiable because a couple of (formerly prominent, now fallen) dead tree trunks are visible.

Getting There

After hiking up the short trail from the paved path and turning right at the large, old stump, head right along the trail that parallels the cliff.

You'll pass a number of bolted lines in the Eavesdown Docks area before crossing above a narrow talus field at the base of the cliff. The next wall you encounter after crossing the talus is the Persephone area. Continue along the base of the cliff past the Persephone routes, uphill past some bushes on the right, and continue along the base of the cliff above a largish talus field.

At the end of the short cliff band cross the now-narrowed talus field and then double back on a switchback which again crosses the talus. Follow the trail to the routes, the bases of which are partially occupied by a couple of large, dead trees.
