Rockfax Description
The slanting groove behind the tree is climbed in its entirety. It gives a fine sustained pitch which is a little easier than it looks from below. Although quite polished, there is still the odd creaky hold to keep you interested. © Rockfax

A return after leading this many years before. Still excellent albeit even more polished and still with a bit of dirt and vegetation. Recommended nonetheless.

Excellent route, sustained at the grade - it just keeps coming, every time you think it's easing off there's another hard bit. Well led by Carmen, quite run out at the top as she was running out of gear!

Amazed - my brother's first ever climb outdoors having only taken up climbing 2 mths ago. He flew up it, clean, with a big smile. Was a moving moment to see his wonder that he could climb rock like that. First climb with Sonya too. Oh, and fab route, not that polished and interesting moves to the very top. Then you get a great belay position and view.

Same grade, but much more sustained and strenuous than garrotta next door. A lot of foul language coming from my mouth throughout the climb, especially when I had to reverse the hardest move to free a rope snag
