Black Beard E1 5b
[Black Beard., 2 kb]7m. Contraband Buttress. Right of the corner, climb the centre of the slab direct finishing on the left of a tree. A solo, though lassoing the tree at the end might be a good idea.

Had a quick look at the holds on the way off contraband crack. Really nice climbing but wouldn't say its safe enough for HVS, E1 5b?

Bit of a chop route. Might be worth dragging a rope to lasso the tree?

Really had the beaver fever on this. Nice

Couldn't tell if it looked shit or inviting, turned out to be quite pleasant.
