Rockfax Description
A route of great character, superbly positioned and on perfect rock. Move up left and traverse left to a peg, now climb direct until a balancy move right gains a position beneath a steep flake-crack. Climb this to a lower-off. Now mainly bolted. © ROCKFAX

THE TREE HAS GONE. I haven't done this route but when we came up today to do Tufa King Hard it was gone. It's remains are immediately below the crag. For When The Tree Falls is now your only option.

Exiting the tree onto the wall seemed quite tricky now that its upper branches have gone. However this is balanced somewhat by the presence of two bolts after the top crux which probably reduces the climactic excitement a little. All in all a fine and memorable outing though, made all the more so by leaving all my small wires behind!

Not really a trad route anymore. wasn't Sure what you were allowed to clip and what you weren't. felt like 6b+ if you clip bolts that are there.
