UKC

25m.

Rockfax Description
Technical and bold climbing up the wall. Start at some mottled rock. Climb the thin crack and continue to under the final wall. Move left and take the safest line to finish through the yew tree! © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Start at the white spotted pedestal at the left of the bay and climb directly up keeping the large crack to your right (gear). Mount the ledge and climb up behind the tree (using branches for aide). Abseil station out right (shared with adjacent routes).

βeta: Really surprised to see this graded HVS. It is markedly easier than Peace in Our Time (to its right), Emotional Dyslexia, or even Falacy, which are all low/mid HVS at most.

βeta: I was expecting bold climbing but pretty much laced it. It's slightly run out near the top but on good holds.

βeta: Felt fairly bold in places. Good holds throughout and good feet, gear sometimes needed seeking out.
