UKC

35m, 2 pitches.

SMC Description
40m. An excellent enjoyable route up the steep wall behind the huge beech tree.
1. 20m 4c Climb the corner starting just left of the tree. At an overhang swing right and up to another (right-facing) corner; this provides the crux. Exit left and belay at an angular flake.
2. 20m 4b Climb up slightly leftwards to a grass bay. Climb a short groove right of a smooth wall, step left, and finish up an awkward left-facing corner. © SMC

UKC Logbook Description
Rather better than appearances might suggest.
1. 4c/5a. Up the groove to a nice couple of moves right to the short smooth groove. This is difficult for short climbers but the protection is perfect. Up and traverse left to an excellent stance. Remember to protect your second!
2. 4b. Straight up on a plethora of wonderful holds to a move right at the grassy bay. Up to the short square groove. this can seep but the rib to the right offers delightful climbing. Very traditional finish.

An excellent route! I think I went further right than I should have done though, and did what was maybe the last section of Piker's Progress before belaying off the tree at the top, next to the abseil anchor. Climbed the whole thing as one long pitch. Crux seemed to be one of the grooves quite low down, being tall was pretty useful. Some nice in situ gear on the route, but sadly couldn't retrieve any of it as crag-swag. Beautiful view from the top!

First fifty feet really good. Steep,well protected and sustained. Did it as a single pitch up to good tree belay - glad we used the 60m ropes as it was a long way.

Great route, but P1 felt harder than some VS's I've done. The crux corner is definitely 4c, and the bits leading up to it felt sustained 4b. Surely VS no? Maybe I was just having an off-day.

Theres a wasp's nest at the grassy area of the 2nd pitch so beware! Luckily I didn't disturb it on lead but my 2nd got absolutely annihiliated! :P

Easy enough climb if you follow the proscribed route. I tried to go straight up the headwall behind the beech - it goes but it is unprotected and leads to a horrible pull up a dirt shelf. Helpful folk advised so I down-climbed back to correct route, set up a belay and climbed in two pitches.
