1) -,19m. Take the line of ledges and cracks leftwards from the belay, past a bush to the large tree. Belay.
2) -,6m. Climb up to the overhang above and pass it on the left. © Rockfax

In two pitches. Didn't think it was as great to protect as Rockfax guide says. 7am on a lovely sunny day though - very pleasant belay.

Gregory Gibas 18/Jun/16 Lead O/S

Done as one pitch. First time there and surprisingly no guidebook tree found. But found the tree root, as the route name stands for :)

Poor route, 2nd pitch waiting to crumble onto the belay below. Can only imagine it got into Westcountry Climbs to keep a wide grade range.
