Rockfax Description
A splendid little route. Move up steeply to a niche and pull out to good holds. Move up and left to a tree and finish direct. © Rockfax

A tough start, and once in the groove a 'get the gear in and go for it' kind of attitude would really help! A pleasant romp after the crux.

Great climb. Couldn't get any gear to stick reliably above the tree, so run out.

Got in the niche without much fuss but weighted the rope twice on the crux move - had a breather, worked the moves out then finished - great route.
