The second pitch continues up a very featured slab to pull through a notch, and more featured slab.

5 out of 5 stars Great warm up

Long route for Rumney. Gets really hot at the top on a sunny day. For some reason I have more trouble with this than Clusterphobia or Armed and Dangerous. However I have been told that I am wrong.

4 out of 5 stars good line

Very high first bolt (20 ft or more) above easy climbing, then good moderate route following natural features. Done with a stream flowing down the top portion.

5 out of 5 stars A very nice route.

It's a nice line, not just a series of moves.

4 out of 5 stars Main Cliff's best easy route

Definitely one long pitch rather than two pitches. Great jug haul with a couple short crimpy cruxes. The shorter people in my group absolutely loved this climb, for what that's worth! Fantastic 5.8+.
