Really good fun. The move is fairly obvious but requires trust in your feet and a bit of thrutching. Protectable with a size 6 Dragon but not much else. Nice bridging the rest of the route.

Good route, not as deep in the crack as I'd thought, lots of face moves for holds / feet. Good use of double hexes for an improvised placement.

My esoteric tick for the day. Had a couple of number 4 friends but these were barely large enough. My first placement fell out when pulling the ropes through for my second. Hexes were too small. Crux is definately the first few metres but surprisingly unphysical with a bit of back- and-footing. Easier once able to bridge higher up.

Third time lucky for Andy after pulling off block on Heart of Tree then nearly leading this after rock had severed rope almost clean through.

TOP ROPE SOLO. FOUND THIS EXTREMELY DIFFICULT AT THE START! HARDER THAN THE 2 HVS CLIMBS DONE ON THE SAME DAY!
JamesColeman - TR dog - 29/Jul/12

Ha, been on my wish list 4 a few months and then I go and solo it. Not great gear intill u get to the chock stone. But the climbing if u keep your head is more than enough.

anthonyp - 2nd O/S - 29/Jun/10 with Darrell Russell

None of the big hexes fitted the crack and the big cams only just. Made for interesting climb (read wasnt sure if any of my gear other than the first piece would have held me .. everything other than my first piece was doubtful until I found a chockstone some 25-30ft up). Been on the todo list for some time .. great to have gotten up it :-)
