45m. An excellent line. Start as for Axeminster. Follow the snaking groove to a tenuous pull through the small roof immediately right of the tree near the top.

Gear was quite far below, but by doing it this was felt a lot more like typical vs 4c- absolutely fantastic. Maybe I'll go back and do the overhang at somepoint

SuperLee1985 23 Jun, 2014 Lead O/S Excellent route but HARD! It felt more like HVS 5a to me. Definitely on of the hardest leads I've done. It starts of gently but each section gets progressively harder. Pretty tame up to the tree, then some interesting moves getting round the first overhang, then some excellent but pumpy laybacking up the next groove and then the final groove!!! A proper strenuous (and tenuous) pull through the overhang. I must admit to using the tree (dead and fairly rotten) in a moment of sheer terror and desperation to aid me over the final bit.
