Great route! Climb via steep face and grooves to a ledge at half height. Step up left into groove and then pull through the roof!

Great route. Tons of gear, so felt really soft even with some good moves. Took the final overhang in the centre, great exposed moves with jugs all the way. Then we abbed down Gollum to retrieve all the gear that Chris abandoned when he bailed :-)

Mark Davies PK 07/Mar/14 TR rpt

Yeah really good, possibly worth 2 stars, the right side of the final overhang is the logical way but going through centrally is better and still within the grade (but only just!).

Or was it Greybeard? Whichever it was great, no polish, holds and gear there but no push over, gains extra credit for the overhang. Two stars!

Intended to do greybeard, but went too high (following the misleading guidebook description) so repeated Treebeard, pulling over the top roof slightly further right.
