95% sure this is the correct route. Couldn't make the last move (or two), will try again when I have more energy.

Really nice route, better than it looks. Initially tried to step up left by the old tree stump but then found I couldn't move right. Fell off/rested a few times and then found the crack up/right which makes a good hand-hold when pulling up. Would like to go back and lead again clean.

One of the most interesting sport routes I've ever climbed...! Fun, fairly easy moves up the wierd chimney/groove, easy 6a until the moves getting to and above the level of the rotting tree, which are the hardest IMHO. 1 star just for wierdness :)

Use rocks beneath and slightly out behind you once at tree stump they give advantage needed to gain right hand route 6a+ to the belay rather than balance act on dodgy dusty tree for left route to same finish. A worth while climb either way.

I stepped and pulled right at top to avoid loose tree stump and then moved up right arete to belay point. This felt like a hard move, but thats probably just me!

Nice climb (a little dusty) until you get to the cut back tree. In hindsight it looks like you may be able to step right and use holds away from the line of bolts but this is not in the guidebook description (it says step off the tree thats no longer there!).

I ended up using a too small nut at the back of the mud (behind the tree stump) to protect a dodgey move up before clipping the belay rings.
