28m. Climb the slabby pocketed wall as for My Noble Son Seth to reach the vegetated ledge. Climb the bulge rightwards to reach a small cave and a good thread placement just above (not in-situ). Take the line of pockets above for several moves then step left onto the slim face with a thin crack (micro-wires) and move up small edges to reach the multi-trunked tree. Ignoring the easy crack on the left move slightly right and somehow tackle the tricky and poorly protected wall and slim groove above. Finish up easy ground.

SamStokes 21 May, 2011 Lead O/S Was really dirty, fun climbing and the rock is a little friable in places which adds to the excitement. could do with a good cleaning or lots more people climbing on it to keep it healthy! Worth a go!
