Holly Tree Groove* 6a
18m. 15m left of The Herring is a steep wall with a huge flake at its base and a large holly growing out of the wall behind the flake. The route climbs a shallow groove in the wall just right of the holly. Start by scrambling up the chimney behind the flake to belay off the holly and a bolt. More technical than the usual strenuous pulling. Might be worth 2 stars

good route, catches the evening sun longer than most routes. There are bolts straight up the wall avoiding the need to belay off the tree
