Not sure that the thread needs to be in situ at this grade, although it makes a nice, comforting target :)bpmclimb - Lead rpt - 30/Mar/14 with Clare
A striking feature that caused some serious burn on the leg muscles.

Would be E1 if someone replaced the thread every year? (also why is the belay rope tied to a tiny holly when there is an enormous beech tree right next to it?!)

Went out right looking for handholds just above the thread, and had to do a big swing back in off a not very substantial flake. Don't think I'd have done that on lead. Not really 5c I think.
Hooo - 2nd O/S - 25/Aug/13 with Chris Sieradzki
Soft E2 5c. I'd grade it myself more like solid hard E1 5b although very nice and technical bridging climb on some crimple holds. My first ever route where my legs got pumped more than my arms. :)

Never really hard if bridged right (which I did) and you can hang around as long as you like placing gear left right and center.
Tomar - Lead O/S - 17/Nov/12 with Kelly
Pleasant steady climbing, don't let yourself get distracted by rubbish flaky rock as you get started up the groove, the rock gets better as you go higher. The in-situ thread makes the route a grade easier.

Had a wee rest on the thread just below the crux - the ancient static cord creaked and that gave me the motivation to just get on with the rest of it!

Straightforward bridging route. I noticed while abseiling down after the climb, this is actually pretty steep, even though I hadn't felt so. Simon's first Extreme (to make to the top).

rock was a bit loose looking in places. some pretty tentative bridging over to the left hand side of the groove.

Nice route. Sustained but well protected at crux which is top of groove. The other end of the single rope & mallion lower-off is tied to a small tree trunk - we decided to walk off.

Nice route. Super gear and not nearly as hard as I was expecting after more than 6 months of rock-free fatherhood. Loads of good footholds to bridge from, and some pretty decent hand holds too with an in-situ thread above your head for the crux. E1 5b.
