βeta: What you neglect to mention is that it took you 5 hours and I lost 1 hand to frostbite, but nice one all the same.

βeta: Great route nice easy bottom bit and severly hard top bit. Climbed it in one long pitch so didn't have the luxury of standing on my seconds shoulders.I'm only 5'8 so the reaches on the top wall were nearly impossible,don't climb this if you cant hang around on crimps. I finished up using a small pinch in the crack on the right hand side,before finishing up the right hand side of the tree,is this right? Because this felt 5c not 5b.

βeta: Agreed, some hard moves to leave the midway ledge, the rest of the climb is quite straight forward.

βeta: I tried this yesterday and thought the top was brick hard for 5b. Unless you use the flake on the right wall or are well over six foot there is no way on Gods earth you can reach the ledge from which you have to mantel! My mates BMC Guidebook makes a comment about standing on a mates shoulders which I think says it all.
