1. Start just left of the oak tree and go straight up the wall to a ledge with a tree on the left.
2. Straight up the wall to a big ledge with a big block on it
3. A great pitch - Move right at the back of the ledge and up a series of well-used groves with a brilliant phallic hold near the top.

Lead P1 and 3. Was wet on P1, but good holds - a bit bold in the middle of P1. Small belay ledge - avoided tree belay as looked like a vegetated bushwacking, but from above looked ok. Really fun steep middle pitch again with good holds. Then P3 was a bit tricky but perfect rock, enjoyed it the most. Gave the Thomas a good groping on my way up.

What a great climb! Richard tacked together the 1st 2 of 3 pitches. He disappeared for a while and I didn't really think much about the route 'til I was on it! Very enjoyable, but very vertical- I was too scared to look down whilst I was on it! 2nd (3rd really) pitch nice too. Thomas himself? I was expecting something a little larger!! A nice, solid hold..!
