Meant to do Treebeard but ended up doing this. A bit disappointed to miss the 4c bit but I was lowered down to toprope it after.

The guidebook says "climb Treebeard to the overhang, and climb a slabby groove to the top". One would reasonably assume this means the same "overhang at 15 metres" referred to in the Treebeard description. However, if you go this high you are effectively climbing Treebeard, having done the 4c climbing, and having bypassed the slabby groove. Therefore the "overhang" on Greybeard is lower. Furthermore, there is no viable finish above the slabby groove - you have to finish leftwards to the large tree, as for the two preceding routes (and as for the new HVS Open Knightly). This all needs sorting for the next book.

Thought I was doing Treebeard - to be honest the difference in the variations is so slight as to be unnecessary. I would say there are 4c moves before the overhang anyway.

Another nice route with interest and varied character. After Gundabad it seemed easy, plenty of gear placements, opportunities to rest; a challenging move at half height made me think for a few minutes before I spotted the obvious sidepull. I should have tackled the roof direct, the jugs are massive, just like the red 5c at UCR, but bi-passed it to the right on this 4b variant because I mis-remembered the guide book's directions, (doh). The direct move is a better climb, Treebeard 4c, and very well protected with a wire high on the right so there will be no excuses next time.

Top out's getting a bit messy but it's still brilliant.

Absolutely brilliant route, deserves at least a star, if not three.
