Well that's what I was wondering, but it seems he was referring to a tree that Ethan PRINGLE cut down in the States.
PRINGLE ...mmmmmmm pringles must get addictive tube of crisps!
Fantastic job with the climbing mind, looks challenging :-)

You say he leaped from a tree onto the route. By doing did he miss out the crux? I don't think he can claim the grade even if it was just an easy bit he missed out.
I guess we never did find out who chopped the Raven Tor one?
Good effort Ethan WALKER.
