Rienetta** HS 4a
[Dilwyn climbing Rienetta, Tremadoc., 3 kb]2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Start below the groove/chimney as for Daddy Cool.
1) 4a, 25m. Move up the left side of the groove and then step right across its top to the base of the vegetated slab. Climb this to belay at its top as for Merlin Direct.
2) 4a, 18m. Traverse left across the top of the slab to the corner. Move out to a crack and climb this with care to a tree belay below two grooves.
3) 4a, 21m. The right-hand groove is tricky. Finish up and left. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
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!

George Killaspy - AltLd O/S - 24/May/14 with John

Underrated and underclimbed... pitch 1 is pleasant enough, but foreplay for the superb second and third pitches which are superb. P3 feels quite exposed and airey for the grade, loved it.
Blake - AltLd - 18/May/14

Lead P1, 3, and 4. The last two pitches make up for the average quality of the start, although the use of a trowel and patio hook has improved it significantly.

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.
