Rockfax Description
The crack and long twisting groove right of the thorn tree.
1) 4c, 22m. Climb the groove, then move right and up into a niche. Climb up and slightly left to a grassy ledge.
2) 4c, 26m. Follow the wide flake-crack to its top, then traverse right easily, passing a yew tree. Climb the groove, pulling out left on to the wall (peg) in a good position. Finish direct. © Rockfax

Hard to get used to this limestone trad after spending most of my time on grit. Lots of holds, most of them not very good, a few of them ready to fall off and lots of grass. An enjoyable outing tho. I led P1 but went to a stance on the right since the line in the guide is completely clogged with ivy.

with Jon
pedrosanpb 03/Aug/14 AltLd O/S

Led pitch 2, on pitch 1 we avoided the non existent gap between the ivy and the yew tree by going straight up to the stance. Good climb

Pitch one good. Pitch two very wandering. Think went right way as found peg. Difficult to avoid rope drag.

Lead P1, Saw the niche from the ground and decided I had to 'have it'. superb moves upto and past. not on massive jugs so required sucking up, the rest of pitch one was fairly poor. Pitch two looked a good lead, again not on massive jugs.

Found this pretty tricky. I'm 5ft 3 and seemed the better holds were always just out of reach. Predominantly climb on grit at higher grades, but struggled like hell on this!

Some very nice climbing and not very polished at all. First half of P1 excellent.

Led P2. Wandering, occasionally loose, lineless climbing protected by a few rattly nuts and a rusty peg and with plenty of blind moves requiring faith in what lay above. Oh, and covered in dead birds. Epitomises everything that's bad about peak limestone.

I found the bottom pitch of this a real struggle! long traverse close to the top on loose rock - a huge lump the size of a football came off as I pulled on it. gibbered a lot, then gibbered some more. second pitch is more solid and a bit easier.
