Made an erse of this. Good gear but didn't look for the good footholds to the right. Really a bit easy, E2 in fact. AT LEAST 2 GRADES EASIER THAN XANADU!

Feels quite run out above tree and the rock quality decreases
Dangerous Dave - Lead O/S - 25/Feb/12 with Polish Pete

Actually pretty good.

Fell off just above the Holly tree but managed to miss the worst of the sharp stuff on the way past. Lowered to the midway ledge, chilled out for a few minutes then led cleanly to the top. Seem to be going through a phase of falling off stuff...
Neil Adams - Lead dog - 31/Jul/11 with Jim Higgins

Had to rest on gear to retrieve the nut Neil welded in on his lob ;-)

A good rest on the holly tree is a great place to appreciate the exposure. Probably would have been gibbering a bit more at the top if I had realised the bush wouldn't save me from being brained on a massive shelf.
henwardian - Lead O/S - 17/Aug/09 with Andy Latta

Very very pumped and somehow got to the top. Getting to the holly is fine, getting past it is tough and top groove just keeps going...

Bit pumped and shat it on top jugs, reverse towards gear and took the fall. Should have made 1 more move to the easy ground.... muppet.
