Tricky moves to 1st ledge then nice off-balance crack and muddy mantelshelf to the top. fun..
fawlty - TR RP - 04/Aug/13 with Christine

this climb is not much harder since the demise of a tree route and the addition of a lot of dust as the tree holding the earth together is dead and rotting away. It would be good if bowles would dig back the earth about a foot to help clean the climp up. I think the finishing moves are harder than some of the 5c's now (UN for example)

Finished with one rest. The move onto the shelf half way up was a little tricky. High foot and rock over needed.
