Nice climbing, piles on the pressure at the top. Not a fan of the tree; feels like its not got long left.

Slippy climbing up to the tree then fierce climbing ending in a final cheeky move to the chains just when your forearms aren't keen. Really good climbing! Good quick little hit on the way to work for the weekend!
