Nice climbing. Tony did first 2 pitches as one. Didn't seem to be a 3rd pitch so not sure if off route (went left rather than right of the dead oak tree).

This climb seemed to be confused with Axeover in the 2010 guide, probably because the description had been lifted from the 2000 guidebook. The natural line is to continue up the wall to the left of the tree from the ledge. The route is better as two pitches.
caradoc - AltLd - 13/Apr/14 with Matt H.

Attempted lead on first pitch, backed off early moves, deb lead through and then i worked moves to find solution, Deb also placed nut runner in small hole / crack that I missed. 2nd pitch traverse ok, I took option to climb crack at LHS off tree rather stepping further right and climbing the tree root & tree.

Led pitch 1 & 2. Good technique makes pitch 1 reasonable - but go at it head on and it is strenuous.

Little bold on each of the pitches but steady. Went left after the traverse up a worn groove.
Zoomer - Lead O/S - 13/Mar/12 with Ash Sleight

Really nice route, enjoyed the second pitch (which was probably a variation of the actual route in the book) abbed off at top of second pitch. Worth a couple of stars.
ashsleight - 2nd dnf - 13/Mar/12 with Glen bloomer

Ld P2. P1 pretty wet. Done in 2 pitches but may have done something slightly different to the actual route... 4c, 4c.

Going up the corner (as for Hedera) felt 4c/5a. Possibly a 4b option (poorly protected) up the slab right of the corner .
