Rockfax Description
A tough and green route. Used to be E4 before someone chopped down the starting tree - not a practice to be encouraged. A boulder problem start gains the difficult groove which is followed to the top. Breaking out left to the arete at half-height is The Ambassador, E8 7a. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A direct on 'superdirect'. Start behind the tree, arrange some gear, and make heinous moves to better holds. Take these to the base of a clean-cut groove, deep breath, and, gooo!
(Groove in need of a good clean with yard brush)

Where to start. The tree has regrown since Redheads ascent making the start 6b. Mike led it clean really well then belayed beneath the green groove. Seconded crux pitch ok, then 2nd was covered in lichen all the way up groove. Started climbing it but feetkept pinging and i just lost face with it and aided out. A brilliant pitch when clean. Much cleaner now after climbing up and abbing down. GET ON IT.

Lead bottom crux section clean onsight, awesome moves (used tree for first 3 metres or so, would have been baffled without it) and then belayed at halfway ledge for al to have a go at the horrendous green crack/groove but wasnt a goer in that condition. Will get back there and clean it with the hope that it will get the traffic it deserves, top route!
