S.O.S.* VS 4b
[Naturally sculpted rock, 4 kb]

Rockfax Description
A decent line though the tree gets in the way! Climb into, and up, the groove at the left edge of the wall then head up right to a big tree (possible stance). Continue above the tree until a short leftwards traverse leads to a steep groove. Up this to finish. © ROCKFAX

This is harder than VS 4b. If you're under 5'7" of thereabout, you may find that you can't reach the breaks on the wall (near the peg), making it really rather hard. As long as you're prepared for that,you may enjoy it. Gear's good.

Really would not bother with this route, tree obstructs part of it and generally just not great climbing
