Castor** E1 5c

Rockfax Description
The hairline crack just left of the tree has a couple of very thin moves (small wires) to reach a niche and easier ground. Continue past the holly keeping left of a well-wedged hanging-death block. © ROCKFAX

Excellent lower wall but shame it eases off so much at the top and going round the holly tree/bush detracts, spent a while arranging plenty of gear for what looked like a nails crux only to find some good flat holds and it was fairly straight forward.
