UKC Logbook Description
The face in between Ash Tree Crack and Bilberry Crack. The grade assumes side runners are not used, and is somewhat generous

Moves no harder than ash tree variations, with no risk of a ground fall until you're past the crux. E1 5b?

deacondeacon - Lead O/S - 28/Jul/13

josephxtian - TR - 25/Jul/13

Done without side runners for a more elegant repeat. Crux moves are protected by solid gear in the break, but you wouldn't want to blow the top of the slab.
Andy Clarke - Lead rpt - 08/Jun/13 with Alex

mattscott - TR dog - 04/Jun/13 with mark eastman, james walker

as part of the Crag Rats day out so top roped but clean, would be scary on point.
P Rogers - TR - 02/Jun/13

Side runner
alooker - Lead O/S - Jun/13 with Serena

Used a side runner on left, so E1 at most. Line I took felt like 5b (as in the BMC guide, which calls the route Bilberry Pie).

Seconded after Guy lead it, having first top roped it. Very good run out section on the slab. Probably worth a star, will try to lead next time.

Are side runners ethical? without them, only bit of pro pn horizontal break before the crux. more delicate climbing for the short
natzim - TR O/S - 23/Aug/09 with David Morgan

Irn Bruce - TR - 23/Aug/09 with Ian Jenkins

Big fall potential, but not a decker. Relatively easy to read sequence of goodish pockets (requires good friction conditions).

thomasadixon - Lead O/S - 10/May/09 with Alan

Pretty easy but pretty bold I think with the crux moves quite high above gear and potential for decking!

Nearly went for the solo, but returned for a rope and a side-runner. Unethical, but neccisary.
Franco Cookson OLD - Lead - 10/Feb/08 with David Warburton

On a sweaty summer day. Bailed into a crack at the side before downclimbing and doing it properly. Felt bold.
Andrew Barker - Lead - 2008 with Dan O'Flynn

Cam in the low break, straight up the middle of the slab, Had a wobble and down climbed to the break then committed - you will deck from the last moves

The moves aren't too bad for 5c (maybe only 5b), but the gear is terrible unless you use side runners, in which case it isn't E2. What do other people think? The top slab does have some very nice moves on it though.
