4c moves in loose groove before Oak are protected by dubious gear (nut behind detached looking flake and large cam in flared crack), nice upper section. Meant to do Monsoon/Pinnacle as warm up and started in wrong place.The Ivanator - Lead O/S - 01/Sep/13 with Matt
Well stiff for the grade, watch out for loose stuff!!

Pants before Oak - good after.

Some strenuous reachy moves to tree. Upper part (in near-darkness!) was good - good gear, moves & rock. First half seemed vegetated & poor rock, but top part saved the route - 1 star.

The massive flake/block in the groove below the oak tree does not appear to be reliably jammed in. Probably wise to avoid using it for hand/foot holds (or gear) - but this is easier said than done!

masses of suspicious rock (although less now that Brian booted off the most dangerious blocks on second). I wouldn't recomend it!

Felt straightforward. Nice moves up to the oak. Some loose rock on this one, some quite large.

Enjoyable route. Found it quite easy at the start. The crux for me was quite high up the route.

Had to rescue a friend who took a 20m fall on Monsoon. as for this route, very loose in places, often dirty and vegetated. tough for the grade.
Webster - 2nd - 25/May/10
Quite tough & scarry, with a lot of dodgy rock. Crux is bit by the tree, top not as hard as it looks
PaulWatson - 2nd O/S - 13/May/10 with Dave P
Rubbish. Loose, dirty, green, aimlessly wandering. Fairly sustained but barely deserves being called a route, let alone a star!

Tried to remove nut left behind by Chris below, spent 5 minutes on it thinking Andy had placed it. It's still there.

Pussied out at the crux and ran away!

Long, good, and quite hard for the grade. A few loose blocks - deciding what to pull/step on is part of the challenge, I suppose. We both really enjoyed this climb.
