Actually really enjoyed this route. You can avoid all the chossy crap at the top by following the overlap up the edge of slab, which makes it slightly harder but has good gear. The bottom half has rubbish gear except just before the crux.crossdressingrodney - Lead O/S - 24/Jul/14 with Mike

One nice move before a sustained section of rubbish! Useful to get to Liverbird Buttress though.

Easterly wind, biting cold interesting route, felt harder than Severe. followed by Liverbird Buttress

Nice well-protected crux, not a lot of good gear and some (but not too much) vegetation otherwise. HS 4a at least... Reasonable adventure-route, definitely not worth a star imo though.

Flat and not a lot of pro to begin with but then got a bit more interesting later on.

Harder than S, and not as good as I remember. Just wanted to squeeze in some extra ticks in the fading light to round off the best day of the year so far.

Not a brilliant route but at least we got some extra climbing done in a beautiful evening.
JamesRich - 2nd O/S - 10/Mar/12 with Rob stanfield, Jack Bradbrook
Trying to climb this in converse is fairly difficult since they have no traction at all so smearing is completely off limits, luckily there's a few edges and things that I was still able to utilise.

After a 3 week layoff decided to go for something gentle! First pitch is tiny but has no relavent gear and is pushing HS, with both having challenging enough cruxes to be 4a. Trouble is the whole climb would represent poor value at HS. The "Large Ash Tree" has been somewhat delargified of late.

Rich lead the 1st pitch, I lead the 2nd. Felt jolly scary with some very run out parts, not an enjoyable route.

Not sure wheret he second pitch finished. There was a broken tree at about 30m but i could see a massive ash tree further up. went to that and ran out of rope (60m)
