<< Heartbreak Hotel
 
Rienetta Variation Start >>
[Dilwyn climbing Rienetta, Tremadoc., 3 kb]2 pitches. Start as for Heartbreak Hotel but trend rightwards across the newly cleaned slab to Merlin stance. Traverse left to belay above first tree. Brilliant, unlikely climbing to the top, ace route. Donít worry about blocks on top pitch these are no worse than any others here!

P1 + P3, Gav P2. P1 is diff but fun, P2 short and sweet, P3 good fun. Good gear and only 1 toughish move in the crack

Ray Sparks - AltLd O/S - 05/May/13 with pete ranstead

Variation start. I led the slab pitch, and the traverse pitch (which was more like 4a than 4c). C led the final corner - excellent stuff with a tricky move at half height.

Lead as part of RCI course. Was told it was HS, felt about there, last pitch was slightly strenuous but not difficult. Awesome moves on good positive holds and the crack swallows nuts. First pitch is near enough a scramble. Worth 2 stars. A hidden gem.
