Err this was interesting. Turns out slabs are pretty slippery when wet. Managed to lose my feet on several occasions, took some falls and later a good catch on my arms. Lowered off the sapling.

Starting right of the tree, rather that at the tree itself (as per guidebook instructions) makes more sense at the grade. There's a distinct move right at about 8 metres to gain the large crack that runs up to the sapling. Then pass to left of sapling.
