Unique fun in the dark with head torches!

Hidden - Lead O/S - 17/May/14

Enjoyed. First difficulty was getting to stand above the thread in the tree, then crux move was between second and third bolt. Led with Jon on Belay.

Nialllusby - 2014 with Iain bridges

Once I realised girls can climb trees too this became a great climb. Don't be afraid to bridge a bit beetween the tree and the crag. It makes the final stages of tree ascent a little easier.

Got to be done for sheer entertainment value. How often do you get chance to place a thread runner in a tree

Fun and atypical. Nicely steep once on the rock. Lower-off too far to the right for easy removal of quickdraws.
