The Beauty is a classic route, and a great intro to climbing in the Rum. The approach is not that long, maybe an hour if you do it right, but quite involved. the climbing is all of high quality.
P1: the beautiful corner. laybacks and hand jams take you to a nice ledge w/ bolts.
p2: interesting twin cracks lead to a one bolt belay, skip this and continue to stem upwards to a great ledge with two bolts.
p3: some scary face moves protected by drilled pins right of the ledge, to easier climbing over some soft rock to a one bolt belay ledge under the OW
p4: squirm up the wide crack to a large ledge with bolts.
rap the route, you would have to rap off one bolt anchors in a couple spots if you only had 1 rope.


approach through rakabat canyon, good maps are provided in the Howard guide book.


two sets of cams to 4" and stoppers.
one 5 and 6 camalot.
