fatbuoybazza - 2nd O/S - 02/Oct/11 with liv_the_div

Not a lot of climbing, perhaps 6metres in total (from standing on the boulder to the lower tree/ branch) but pleasant enough, polished, not worth going the last scrabbly stretch to the tree.

Jacob Ram - Lead rpt - 28/Jun/10 with elisa best

Took as martins first outdoor climb, first jam move off the block makes it suprisingly hard for a novice to second. But a few tree roots higher up make excellents holds for someone who gets in a panic.
Kemics - Lead O/S - 28/Jun/10

Went a bit off route staying away from the jamming, including going around to the right of the tree. :-(

Would be much improved by finishing at the first big tree as for Alta Vista. Above this there is as much tree root as rock and more earth than both, somewhat spoiling the good initial section.
