DescriptionThe Beginning of All Things climbs the arete on the steep section of Jimmy Cliff left. It traverses up and right, past the anchor of Things As They Are Now and ends to the right at the chains of Things As They Are.
Many people consider this route to be quite contrived- and it is. Though not the most logical or eye pleasing line on Jimmy Cliff left, The Beginning of All Things makes for a great warm up for some of the crags harder offerings. For 5.10a it can seem quite pumpy, though there is a great rest soon before the chains of things as they are now. Right after this rest comes the crux- the feet get a little thin though precise footwork should pull you through it just fine.
It is worthwhile to note that The Beginning of All Things is also useful for hanging draws on Things as they are now (5.12a).
Is this the most wonderful 5.10 at Rumney? Absolutely not.
But it it worth your time?
