Nice to come back and lead this. Rusty pegs, nice traverse, tree, didn't really think hard enough about protection so the rope drag at the top was disgusting. Lovely.

Seconded, clambering about up here with a rucksack isn't a huge amount of fun but an interesting pitch still.
DaveX - 2nd O/S - 03/Sep/15 with Joe Urwin
A fun start followed by a committing pull up from the top of the flake. I've certainly done easier VS routes. Wasn't sure if I could actually do the move off the flake for some time but got it in the end. Finished with just enough light left. Good seconding by Rachael :)
BStar - Lead O/S - 27/Aug/15 with Rachael
In reflection I quite enjoyed the route! My first time climbing a tree, the traverse across the flake was harder than Adam made it look. I was glad of a rope when I got to the first iron stake as the pull up on the open crimp was 'interesting'

Not sure I really did the second half of the climb.

Ended up escaping round the right slightly into a corner and then trying to come back across onto petros, but I don't think I finished up far enough left

Excellent climb as allways. A large portion of the traversing flake seems to have broken away, changing the moves somewhat, but leaving it at the same grade in my opinion. Lots of rope drag due to having to protect 2 seconds.

Very interesting start. Climb up the tree and then if you're tall get a nut behind the bolt plate, before converting to the rock. Luckily very grippy first 2/3m to the small crack. Just be careful with which rope you clip, as extremely prone to rope drag.

Start the pitch by climbin a tree (?!). Keep a thin sling handy to pop around the bolt before you bridge from the tree to the overhanging slab. Then getting onto the big flake to the right (peg) is a bit tricky and the flake itself offers good practice for placing gear, in this case big hexes, while hanging off your other hand. After the flake you cut back left up a short wall and then more up and left on steps, so I'd advice using long slings in the flake and short wall to avoid the drag.

Good way to finish the evening, even if it was getting dark and Jordan kept finding new bushes to get into a fight with. Jumping off the tree onto the start of the climb was fun, and the moves along the flake crack were brilliant, and only slightly reduced in quality by the huge amount of polish.

Maybe I was off-route towards the top but it felt quite scary for VS. Maybe I just need to climb at Avon more.

One tough move (or was I having a bad day?), nice route though. Watch the wasps nest.

Hmm... a bit more taxing. Damned glad I didn't have to lead this one (4b). I got to a large bulge of rock and foundered; I wasn't confident of my hand holds. After one fall, I managed it and the rest of the climb was easy.

We definitely did something there that involved climbing a tree so I assume it must have been this one!
