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.

Hidden - Lead O/S - 23/Aug/14

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
Sol Armer - Lead O/S - 08/Aug/14

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.

Climbed swiftly by Kyle, so to save me from the swarming midgies...
woody0606 - 2nd rpt - 07/Jun/13 with Kyle Williamson

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

Hard for the grade, easier for the tall.

Should be HVS 5a.

Got spooked at overhang. Bailed out to the right. Will be back to do it right.

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!

Fantastic route!! In the November sunshine with the orange oak leaves falling around me! Lovely moves up endless corner and flake cracks with a hard (5a?) move to fight the overhang!

Desperate final moves on first pitch- had to use the much abused tree stump.

Very sustained climbing at the grade with a hard and bleedin' awkward finish over the final tree. Strangely unsatisfying (maybe it was the damp rock & gloomy situation).

Great route. Scrabbled abit getting past the tree. Chloe backed off so had to ab down to retrieve the gear.

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.
