Life in Limbo VS 4c
25m. Start atop an earth slope, at a sapling in the lower left corner of a recess. Climb the right side of the recess, step out right, and climb loose rock to a tree. Climb the long crack (somewhat bold to start) to the top.

Felt very easy, Severe even, think heavy-footed climbers/those not used to broken rock would find harder though

Chossy, crumbly rock, not much gear but glad I did it with Antony Neads.

The back-and-foot position isn't necessary, and the tree's lower than one third height - just above the overlap in fact. There's a bold section for about 6 metres above the tree.

Very muddy and vegetated, the crack was appalling for gear, only got 2 dubious placements, on crumbly rock it's not fun

First 8m interesting due to poor/non-existent gear and balancy climbing on choss. After the tree at 1/3rd height a pleasant, clean crack all the way to the top.
