I was climbing at Rumney, main cliff, last weekend and there appear to be a couple new routes not in the Ward Smith guide. I was wondering what they might be?
They are between the right side of the ledge that Rainbow and Men in White Suits (and the trad line Brendan's Bitches) ascend from and Anchovie Caper.
The one on the left appears to have a relatively easy first pitch, and a harder second pitch. (These might be Half Nelson and Full Nelson for the first and 2nd pitches.)
The one on the right is a bit harder at the start than Anchovie Caper (maybe 5.9?) then after the initial start problems, continues on easier climbing.
Do I have the correct name for the left-most climbs? Anyone have grades for them? (First part felt 5.7ish, didn't climb the 2nd pitch.)
