Oak Tree Zig Zag direct >>
[Oak Tree ZAG ZIG etc., Bench Tor, 4 kb]15m. The corner in the centre of the main face is a splendid and challenging little pitch that has a complex start. Start as for Hostile Witness on a flat-topped block below the left end of the huge overhang in the centre of the main face. 17m. Pull up rightwards to a crack in the face below the centre of the huge overhang and then traverse left with feet just above the low overhang to the base of the corner (this point can be gained by climbing direct as for the start of Hostile Witness at Severe 4a). Follow the corner to an overhang, then move left to the easier continuation and take this to the top past some saplings. © ROCKFAX
DESCRIPTION ABOVE IS WRONG!! THIS IS FOR OAK TREE ZIG ZAG - NOT ZAG ZIG! CORRECT DESCRIPTION BELOW: Start at the foot of the undercut groove just left of Oak Tree Zig Zag below an obvious oak tree. Climb the groove to the tree and then make a tricky move left to the foot of another, dirtier groove. Move left again to jugs on the right arete of Senior's Wall and ascend this to belay as for Senior's Wall.
