We *think* it was this route we climbed - the diagram in the guidebook is very vague, being just a line drawing, but we had a play on the exact line shown (or so it looks), to the right of the tree but found some incredibly hard moves and no gear at all - perhaps a new route possibility at E4/E5 or perhaps higher? The line to the left of the tree is an obvious one and felt about right for the grade although the gear isn't that bad if you work for it a little. Lovely crux moves.

Top rope as illustrated in guide book to right of small tree. No gear and if it was bolted would get 6C or 7A grade. Found route to left of small tree to be more climbable at the E2 5B grade given.

See notes from when we top roped this route, not as illustrated in the guide book me thinks. Did it with pre placed gear.
