30m. Start location:
An airy route, initially straightforward, but increasingly challenging as it gains height. A good route at this grade, which is poorly represented in the Avon Gorge, and ideal for a Severe leader looking to improve their all-round skills. The rock is good, and the lower section of the route well protected.
Start by abseiling from the tree at the top of Limbic Dystrophy to the capacious well-protected mid-way belay ledge of that route.

Pitch descriptions:
1. (4a) From the belay ledge easily up the rightward-trending open groove to ledges, then follow the continuation groove with more interest and exposure until forced left onto narrow ledges. After arranging protection ascend the increasingly exposed and delicate right-trending continuation groove to the top. Belay at the tree.

it is very easy to reach the abb tree with an installed chain and the belay pegs are easy to find. The climb is not too vegetated but covered in a lot of loose earth and plant debris lower down. The top wall is clean and solid but almost no gear - feels exposure for severe!
