The slabby face using stuck-on holds leads to the tree. Move left to the cracks right of the arete for a nice finish. Mild at the grade. © ROCKFAX

Nice climb, easy start has no protection but is fun. I couldn't find the in situ belay at the top so had to take the rope all the way to the fence poles. Barely enough for Andy to follow. We searched for the belay for a quite awhile kicking the grass around but it's not there. The adjacent climbs still have theirs though.

Surprised by how quickly this dried after the rain. The 'stuck on holds' on the first wall feel pretty solid for Agden. Not so sure about the blocks the gear goes behind. Not much to belay off.

much better than it looks, direct to tree then cracks on the left give a good finish.

nice route, well protected apart from start which is fine

Good climbing, never harder than 4a, but the gear is never that reassuring so HS 4a seems about right to me.
victim of mathematics - Lead O/S - 10/Sep/07 with Jaime

Excellent route, the top cracks are easier than they appear from below, the initial wall is harder. About Severe rather than HS 4a as in the guidebook, the only unprotected bit is the first couple of metres.
