Rockfax Description
The wide chimney crack and long ridge above gives a worthwhile and varied climb.
1) 13m. Climb the wide chimney crack. Belay above.
2) 35m. Finish up the series of aretes on the right. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
obvious wide chimney crack on the left hand side of oak tree wall
1.40ft climb to the capstone, pass on either side. Belay in the gulley.
2.120ft climb the broken arete on the right. 120ft is generous as the top pitch is a mixture of scrambling and bouldering to various belay opportunities. All good practice for a beginner though.

unknown, probably very early!

skinne 21 Jun Lead More trad practice for Sarah, and a tiny bit of actual chimneying, bonus! As described, a good variety with the arete above the trees. We easily did this in one pitch with a single 50m rope. Again, Sarah led this right after she seconded it. Ps, no slime encountered.

Jamiewalkerjones 8 Mar Lead O/S Good god, this was like climbing up a slimy swamp. Climbed at 9.30pm by torchlight and it had rained all evening... Feet were slipping on even the flat footholds, climbed the whole chimney with teetering, slipping and sliding mantles. Took about 45 mins in all, and would have been quicker in crampons with tools! The top section was great though.
