Reasons to be Cheerful

Scramble out left from the upper deck to a nice stance below to crack (might want a belay). There is a single bolt belay anchor there.
Climb the steep start on good holds to a stance on the left. Jam the sweet locks to a tricky spot 2/3 of the way up puzzle through that and you earn more great finger locks and jams till you are at the top.
To the right of the 3 corners on the upper center section of the cliff (for which the cliff was named) look for a right facing corner with a nice finger crack in it.
Regular rack from fingers to hands. 2 bolt anchor. The placement of the anchor over the sharp edge made me decide to rap off rather than lower, to save the rope.

This route deserves way more traffic than it gets! If it were at an area that had more people interested in trad it would be super popular. Great moves, awesome position and excellent gear! It is a must do for anyone with trad gear at Rumney!
