From culvert to tree III
[The climb out of the culvert., 3 kb]12m. Starts SN97332964. Added for historical reference, as the chances of it freezing again for a long time are slim! From RAC Corner, walk up the road towards Storey Arms for a few hundred metres. This is the first watercourse you come across, after the layby itself. Lower into culvert to start, then climb to the tree. Tree is solid for top roping.

very soloable, just about thick enough to climb today
Webster - Solo O/S - 04/Feb/12

Took in one more steep section and belayed off the retaining fencepost further up the hill. Ice fragile but enough there.

Ah ha, and there's the repeat ascent I was waiting for :D
petersheppard - TR - 03/Feb/12 with Marc Rogers

although it is a rather broken route, it is worth a climb as practice for the main stream as it has moves of a similar dificulty and nature, but with less distance to fall
Webster - Solo O/S - 02/Feb/12

Went back down to repeat the first 2 sections. BECAUSE IT'S FUN!
jambomotamops - Solo O/S - 26/Dec/10 with Toby Vye

Continued up to top of stream - good fun- possibly continues at III?
Hjort - Solo O/S - 26/Dec/10 with Jam Mortimer

Approached through culvert. Ice was brittle and crusted on the top outs. Felt pretty unsafe but great fun and provides much amusement to passing motorists. Also recommend following the grade II gully up from the tree as an additional line.
