14m. A classic sandstone test-piece. Climb the short crack then balance up the near vertical slab using the tiny half-moon flake to reach better holds under the overhang. Scuttle left then right to finish up an easy crack.
FA. Al Rouse 1970s

Was Al responsible for the FA? I'm sure it was Jim O'Neill, a good friend of Al's.
ARCO was first climbeb by Jim's brother-in-law - Alan Oldham.

My Bad, Beatnik was first top roped by Jim in the 60's and was soloed by Rouse in 1971.
