PUBLIC LOGBOOKS
This climb is in 39 logbooks, and on no wishlists.

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!
