Nice enough. Very easy to the last good gear and then a short run-out on smaller but positive holds. Would be fair at HVS.

Crap line, crap gear, not much to recommend this. No way 5b.

Worth a star for the top moves from the fantastic threads at the yew tree. Run out below this, but easy enough climbing.

I still think this is E1 5a.

Chris Sansum 06/Sep/15 2nd rpt
Ian Stirrups 07/Aug/15 Lead G/U

E1 5a seems more appropriate. Adequate but spaced gear to the threads but nothing meaningful after.

I don't think E1 5b represents this route very well. The only runners above the sapling and thread are micros behind small attached blocks, which would very likely fail in a fall. The top 6-7 metres are therefore effectively runout, and this is where the hardest moves are. If those moves are really 5b then the route has to be E2, surely. Perhaps the story is best told by E1 and top end 5a?

A little exciting as the hardest move is a way above gear but straightforward. I thought well protected not bold.

Most disappointing E1 I've climbed. Nothing notable about the line or moves, and poor gear until you reach the threads at the sapling tree. Last 3m climbing is best of route.

Micro wires/rp's essential to protect crux (look carefully!) - without them more like E25b

Nice moves, although it could do with a clean and the bush high up on it removing. Better protected but harder moves than I was expecting from the grade.
