Start about 20 feet right of Oak Tree Zig Zag at the break in the right hand end of the low over hang. Use the high flake to gain the slab and step left to the rounded cracks running slightly R to L. Follow these to the overlap moving right to exit, above the dead tree. Note: various people seem to go left at the 'dead tree' through a hard crack - this does not appear to be the described route.

At the top - straight up through the niche, jamming crack, to the holly tree, up through the holly tree to the top. HVS 5a

HVS version starting on R going up L on slab then the crack - where I failed to get through so went on to the blank slab on the left and delicately moved up

Low right up crack and tree version. Up slab ok then all went horribly wrong at the crack, jamming ability deserted me.

Tried the direct HVS finish initilly but my hand jam was removing tons of moss (which i took as a bad sign of what may be ahead!) finished up the right. Glad i did not do the direct finish as the moss and lichen formed a small blanket on the top. Could do with a good clean. Nice climbing on the lower section for a short route

Very dirty / vegetated which is a shame as the climbing is actually very good. Went left after dead tree up 'difficult' crack to an awkward finish.

The VS 4c version of trembling wall, start at oak tree zig zag, under the roof rightwards, round the corner keep heading up and right to pull over the far end of the overlap at vegatation finish to the right of the tree through a split top block.

A great little climb.It took me a while to work out where it went as the guide book description is odd! I think it starts at the RH end of the slab at a slight break in the overhang at a diagonally downwards pointing flake type thing. I moved up the obvious R to L crack and followed this passing a bush thing and a (not dead) tree. Above the tree you can place high gear in the continuation of the crack you've climbed. I think the proper route exits above and very slightly right of this tree pulling on vegetation - it looked horrible!. I moved back down to a horizontal break for feet, and stepped L to climb a short (but intense for the grade) jamming crack through the mini-roof (this is the one on the crag photo). The climb got very dirty here, so my guess is that not many people make it through the jamming! Above the crack I pulled up and right on more dirty rock and grass holds to an inset rock shelf thing. A sling around the tree protects the second as they move onto the belay.

The 2star HVS 5a version of Trembling wall. Start to the right pulling onto the lower wall at its lowest point, follow the L to R rising breaks to the vertical jamming crack, straight up through the tree finish over top block, brilliant mix of balance and brutish climbing.

Totally sandbagged by this one, vs? Really? nice climbing to the overhang til I fell, horrendous top out though, chickened out so didn't finish...

Lead up to the overhang, then backed off (again!) as couldn't get through. Ben then climbed up my gear and managed to jam his way up through the crack (good effort Ben!). I followed, but my jamming is a bit weak so sat in. Got it in the end though (although jam was very painful)! Interesting route, but need to work on my jamming skills!

Went right - bottled the jamming crack. Seems a hard move for VS.

Started left, under the overhang, which I think bumps it up to at least HVS.

Its very sustained for a VS with every move feeling like 5a, more like HVS. Needs more traffic to clean it up a bit. But still worth 2 stars

Started under the roof at oak tree zigzag, rightwards under roof, around corner then up excellent jamming crack, through a tree and finish over top block.

Great line, but very hard route. Moving up to the jamming crack is hard and getting through it is neigh on impossible (for me!) - much respect to Chris who led the route. Need to learn to jam better

Not sure if I was on route (or even on the right route?!), but could not do the move over/through the roof (to the left of the tree stump and holly tree).
