the tree's creaky, and it was raining when i did it so it was slippy too. i also only had 3 extenders so had to use my ingenuity =) and i went the wrong way (straight up ~VS)

I couldn't remember a thing from my first ascent (which I assume was seconding) so I'm counting it as on sight! Super route, a classic of it's type, sadly threatened by a huge slab at the overhang which looks like it's in imminent danger of falling (though it's looked like that for at least 10 years!)

One of my early climbs, I can't even remember who led, just that the tree seemed rather creaky. It is now completely dead, so the thought of a repeat makes me a little nervous!

An entertaining route - the tree was fine in 1973 and provided the entertainment factor!
