Major Tom* E3 6a
[Major Tom, 4 kb]No pushover. Start atop the cage, step up and take one of several methods to gain the obvious jugs under the roof (gear). A hard pull gains good holds above and right of the peg, then skip up and left past the tree to freedom.

Ticklists: West Country Climbs.

ferdia - 2nd - 10/May/15 with Andy

Be sure to waste as much energy as possible lunging for non-holds, it's a hoot.
Andy Moles - Lead G/U - 10/May/15 with Ferdia

tobydunford - Lead RP - 10/May/15

05/1/15. Tried today on lead, got to the small crimps parallel with peg. Didn't commit to next hold, boxed. Next time.
Ben Russell - Lead dnf - 05/Jan/15 with Jacob Straw

A good climb that really gave me the drive I was looking for. For most of the route it has fairly positive holds and reasonable protection. Will have to try it on lead soon.
