A botanists dream. Required extensive gardening which revealed many positive holds and easy climbing but almost no gear placements. A questionable micro cam halfway up and nothing more until a sling around the stump. There may be more buried. The top was wet and manky but did offer up protection, I'm sure moss adds to the stopping power of a cam. A direct finish would require the ability to climb a compost heap. Since Bill Oddie wasn't on hand for beta I opted to escape left where I found actual rock and a belay at a poor angle. 0 stars, 3 trowels. Hard to offer a grade since I know many HS leaders would be uncomfortable with this little gear but the climbing is very easy.
