Tree in the middle needs pruning as it spoils what is a fun route.

Excellent easy climbing. Got a bit tangled under a tree but otherwise great fun for a start to the day.

Mind the scratchy bush! Seconded this cleanly after sarahlizzy led, but then ended up leading it myself to put the rope back up for the others. Got scratched in the back by the bush on both occasions. Lovely route apart from that.

Don't know why this climb gets given top 50 in Rockfax - it was one of the most mediocre routes I climbed all week.
