Shiny start and rest gave way to alternative finish.

George lead it, put the clips in and chalked a couple of useful holds, then I lead it clean.

Nice climbing, piles on the pressure at the top. Not a fan of the tree; feels like its not got long left.

Blew it at the top - so much for a nice warm down route

Fell off the first crux move attempting to onsight it. Then had a top rope of the upper section and lead clean (just!). Cool route

Slippy climbing up to the tree then fierce climbing ending in a final cheeky move to the chains just when your forearms aren't keen. Really good climbing! Good quick little hit on the way to work for the weekend!
