The Lime Arch** 6b+
[Cold spring morning on the Lime Arch. Beautiful sustained climbing., 3 kb]14m. The steep red wall forming the left wall of the arch is much easier than it looks. After a straightforward start, head up and right to a good flake then either go left to the first hole, or straight up on good crimps to a big finish. © ROCKFAX
On the opposite side to Arch Enemies, the steep red wall is much easier than it looks! After the initial easy start head up and rightwards to a good flake then continue either moving left to the first obvious hole, or climb straight up on good crimps and a big move to finish.
