The Lime Arch** 6b+
[Cold spring morning on the Lime Arch. Beautiful sustained climbing., 3 kb]14m.

Rockfax Description
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

UKC Logbook Description
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.
