My 2nd HS. Whilst the traverse right is interesting and harder than going left for Lorna's Lunch, the crux of both climbs is at the bottom.

Pleasant enough, but not a two star climb and certainly low in both the tech and adjectival grades.

Strange route. The first half is quite good fun, but shortly after the step across at the sapling it become quite grassy and vegetated. Abbed off some cord tied around tree at top.

The CC guide book doesn't say to traverse above or below the tree. I opted for above which felt quite easy. Still claiming it though!
