[Seconding in Dovedale, 2 kb]38m. Tricky moves straight up the wall to a solid (non-yew) tree then continue in the same line to a fingery flake. Step right and press on to the remains of the big yew. Escape right along the break, or abseil from the fixed gear. Almost a sport route now with all the threads. © ROCKFAX

Quality climbing with great moves on great rock, the E1 version of Ten Craters of Wisdom? Some of the institute threads are a bit overkill as it is easy to thread most of them yourself from rest positions, particularly the one behind the tree when you are standing on a big ledge!!

Good lead by Will, needed to pull on the gear on the crux section at 3/4 height. We abbed/lowered off from the tree above the dead yew.
Pete Nugent - 2nd dog - 15/Apr/12 with Will Taylor (LC&CC), Rod Campbell

Reach issues ... Harder for the short i think! Rested to work it out as could not reach the crux holds! Used a small pocket desperately.

Juggy pockets a-plenty, very nice. Some moves looked hard but none actually were hard, don't think it's 5c. Climbed up to the tree from the left, looks there's a variation from the right past a thread. Four more threads on the route, getting a bit old but possible to back them up by threading slings or with other gear.

Pleasant and well-pro climbing. 2 cruxes, one (5b) to get off the tree and the second (5c) right near the top, but there's a few good nuts and insitu threads abound.
