May or may not have used the tree as a hand hold at the top.

Took awhile on this while trying to convince (fool) myself that climbing on rounded holds covered in lichen actually makes it easier (didn't work). Needs a good brush on the top half. There's a couple of tricky, balance moves to reach the top which felt harder then they should of done thanks to all the lichen. Enjoyed it though, should have a star.

No need to use any trees. It was a bit dirty though. Shame as the moves are good - a good, slightly harder companion for Mort Wall.

hard moves, very dirty at the top and the only available hold was the tree!
