That's soft touch of HVS 5a. Two harder sections. First at bottom and second is behind oak tree where upper section starts.

nice route, exposed in places. I thought this was hard for the VS grade, probably pushes onto HVS. the top grove to fantastic though!
lakeyross - Lead O/S - 05/May/14

The top section is pretty good. The run up to the tree halfway up did require some care to be taken. Overall though not bad
Julesthe1st - Lead O/S - 03/May/14 with Mike

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.
Slick - Lead - 09/Sep/12 with Kevin Vans-Colina

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!
bpmclimb - 2nd rpt - 22/Mar/11 with Helen S

masses of suspicious rock (although less now that Brian booted off the most dangerious blocks on second). I wouldn't recomend it!
hms - Lead O/S - 22/Mar/11 with Brian

Felt straightforward. Nice moves up to the oak. Some loose rock on this one, some quite large.
GC - 2nd O/S - 17/Oct/10 with Peter Williams

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!
mullermn - Lead O/S - 18/Apr/10 with Luke Vincent

Tried to remove nut left behind by Chris below, spent 5 minutes on it thinking Andy had placed it. It's still there.
pffft - 2nd O/S - 18/Apr/10 with Andy Arbon

Pussied out at the crux and ran away!

Left behind a nut nr the start :(
Chris Homewood (Swindon MC) - 2nd O/S - 24/Jun/09 with Dave Gale

A bit tottering in places
Bristoldave - 2nd O/S - 13/Jun/09 with Joe & Caroline

Rob84 - Lead O/S - 24/Jan/09 with Jonboy

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.
