βeta: It is grade 5 because the last pillar, but it's not too hard. I don't consider myself a WI 5 leader, and had no problems leading this one. Good intro to the grade

williap 30 Jan, 2018 Lead O/S Boxed out of my tree! Struggled to get screws in most of the way & really had to put it all out there to make it to the top. RHS of the fall and the rockfax line, up to the tree before moving right into the centre line, both icicles were touching the floor but ice wasn’t ideal. Very few, if any, hooks and steep all the way up
