Rockfax Description
A decent line though the tree gets in the way! Climb into, and up, the groove at the left edge of the wall then head up right to a big tree (possible stance). Continue above the tree until a short leftwards traverse leads to a steep groove. Up this to finish. © Rockfax

Start seemed harder than 4b and not low in the VS grade.

Beautiful bit of rock two thirds the way up. Quite nice route too. Fairly tough.

Still cold. Start felt closer to 5b than 4b but probably a false impression.

This is harder than VS 4b. If you're under 5'7" of thereabout, you may find that you can't reach the breaks on the wall (near the peg), making it really rather hard. As long as you're prepared for that,you may enjoy it. Gear's good.

alp79 08/Sep/13 2nd

Really would not bother with this route, tree obstructs part of it and generally just not great climbing
