Line as drawn in Rockfax quite vegetated & wet but followed easiest way up left of Whacko. Some loose rock, & a little gardening required. Nice tower-top finish, & abb off

My first multi-pitch and first abseil off a climb at the end. Was also partners first multi-pitch and abseil which we only discovered once we got to the top!

Steep, slippy approach, then long wait for start, then led to belay stance, then Teresa decided she couldn't follow, then waited for Nick to get kitted up and take over second, then topped out to find Tim and Allessandro trying to work out how to abseil, then eventually got back down. So a bit of a production! Nice climb though.

The walk in is harder than the climb by far ha ha Lovely positive holds and nice climb with a great view.

Interesting walk/scramble up to the base of the climb, once topped out there is a new ab' off point round a large boulder which means the route is now some 10 feet shorter...but the ab is higher! We chose to use the original ab point from the tree - red hot sunny day with plenty of spectators on the path below!

Mass ascent on a damp sweaty day. Good easy 'mountaineering' route with a proper summit for good measure.

Lead second pitch. Cool spiral route around the pinnacle; abseil off a slightly dodgy tree of dubious health over a cave and into a bush.

In one long pitch. A bit scrappy in the middle, but some nice climbing otherwise, and finishes on a proper summit!

Great climb with a fantastic finish. Despite what we'd read very little gardening needed.

start of route very overgrown, traversed in from right at about 8 meters in, maybe HS 4b to get across, possibly best bit though, some nice moves higher up too. loose in places.
