Vegetated after the Oak Tree ledge - the route left of the Oak Tree is probably more worthwhile. Added some more tat to the top tree from which to abseil. Probably best not to descend through the thorn bushes.

I think a lot of climbers must do the hybrid (finishing to the left) or finish at the half-height tree. Proper finish is the wide crack on the right - from below it looks like it heads straight into jungle, but there is a cleanish way up hidden around to the right. Needs a little maintenance from somebody public-spirited!

Nice lead, however after reaching the first Oak tree it is NOT worth going higher, gets really earthy and crappy and not pleasant climbing. Also abseiling from the very top will almost certainly get rope stuck on retrieval so we went down to the first tree then did a second abseil from there and still go the rope a bit stuck from the first abseil.

Only as far as the tree - Made a real meal of the crux, must have missed something, or somethings fallen off. Abbed off in dark. Would say in its current state far too hard for severe, HS 4b more like.

Andrew Bangs 22/May/11 Lead O/S

Felt tough for the grade and exposed for a Severe. I must've missed the easy way! Top third was a mud-fest - had to dig out holds and placements with nut key - so no stars deserved for this one unless it's for the view from the upper section.

Brought Micky up to the Oak, so I could have a go at the crux of Pinnacle Route, but backed off and finished as normal which was a mistake because of the loose rock and earthy finish. If abbing off, I recommend coming down Pinnacle route which is cleaner, and misses the tree. You still need to watch the ropes when pulling down though.

The first half of the route is fine. However after the oak at mid height the rock becomes very suspect. I don't mind the odd loose block or dodgy flake but the problem with this route was that there was so many iffy bits of rock. First time I've ever been worried seconding a route. Not nice at all.
