45m. An excellent line. Start as for Axeminster. Follow the snaking groove to a tenuous pull through the small roof immediately right of the tree near the top.

Went left around the tree at top rather than right bit of a sketchy move for a warm up route

Very good to the tree which spoilt it a bit. Also felt like HVS.

Hard. Not easy to get stood to place gear. Move past the tree unpleasant. Probably best not to touch the tree in case you pull it off...

Entertainingly steep for the grade. Possibly had 4 points of contact in the overhanging tree at one point.

Nice climb with good gear placements. The move over the mini overhang to the right of the tree is harder than anything else on the climb - awkward and reachy but not totally desperate.

Sol Armer 08/Aug/14 Lead O/S

Went right a little before the tree and made some airy delicate moves to gain the line again above the overhang. Gear was quite far below, but by doing it this was felt a lot more like typical vs 4c- absolutely fantastic. Maybe I'll go back and do the overhang at somepoint

SuperLee1985 23/Jun/14 Lead O/S

Excellent route but HARD! It felt more like HVS 5a to me. Definitely on of the hardest leads I've done. It starts of gently but each section gets progressively harder. Pretty tame up to the tree, then some interesting moves getting round the first overhang, then some excellent but pumpy laybacking up the next groove and then the final groove!!! A proper strenuous (and tenuous) pull through the overhang. I must admit to using the tree (dead and fairly rotten) in a moment of sheer terror and desperation to aid me over the final bit.

Speed climbed to get away from the midges, dangerous but effective - for me the leader at least...

cracking little route, sustained at the grade and felt like solid 5a around the overlap......although might feel easier if you are brave enough to pull hard on the rotting tree!

i used the tree to get past the overhang which was extreamly annoying. I ment to cruise this grade but that bit was extreamly hard so i think it spoiled the route somewhat.
