A good route. Start beneath a corner and overhang in the centre of the wall. Climb around the roof on its right, then move back left above to reach a diagonal crack which leads to another roof. Traverse right beneath this to the finishing corner.

A nice little route with a bit of a powerful start before the upper traverse leads you into...

Excellent route.
Good climbing and good gear.
Ideal for a beginner.
Until you get to the traverse which is way harder than the rest. Possibly makes the route HVS.

Felt stiff for VS. The reason for the name becomes obvious when you do the traverse.

I think Limbo is a great VS but I'd disagree that its the best choice for a total beginner at the grade - its a lot harder than the soft touches further left and, more importantly, its much harder to arrange really good gear on the middle section (placements are less obvious, made from a less restful position)
