Taken By The Touch climbs a bulging sloper-arete on perfect stone over a very good landing.
Sit start with a right hand on the arete and a left hand on a sidepull edge on the face. From there, place a right heel hook on the detached flake, bump the right hand up the arete until you can bring the left hand along, then bump up to a pair of edges, bring the feet along, bump further up along the arete, toe in, stick a left hand at the boulder's apex, and pull on top the peak for the finish.
It climbs the northeast arete of Ummagumma.
A pair of pads will work well. The immediate landing is perfect. There is a rock behind the finish that is a good idea to pad though.
