Just as far as the tree, have done the top bit before from other routes. I think this is probably a better option anyway as avoids the choss.

Led a direct version through the cave roof rather than traversing left, guess this has been done in the past, makes for a better climb at HVS.

The crack to the cave is a very nice, if testing problem, and might deserve a star if it finished there. The leftwards traverse into Gimcrack is a bit exciting and not too well protected and you then have the delights of the scree, which somewhat undoes all the enjoyment. The start is almost certainly worth 5a.
