DescriptionThis is an independent start that links several of Cow-a-bunga's harder variations. It shares no climbing with any other established route, but the top third has been climbed before.
Cymbeline is a dramatic climb in five acts: Make bouldery moves off the ground up and right aiming for a small ledge (potentially PG-13). From the ledge, climb the right side splitter of a tornado-shaped feature, reaching another small stance. Step right and climb a clean, fingers-to-hands splitter. Move right and join Cow-a-bunga's 5.9 variation: double finger cracks. This ends at a pair of bolts- where a TR is possible with a 60m rope. I continued up from here, climbing the clean fist/OW corner to the top of the buttress.
Although ledgy and not sustained, the climbing on this route was fun and varied. This route is comparable to The Lord of Wisdom in difficulty, maybe a letter grade harder but less sustained.
FWIW, this route was done ground-up and solo using a Gri-gri.
