Tao is a super sustained power-endurance route on perfect sculpted granite. Stewart described it thus:
"Tao starts on this little ledge high above the trees with some really aggressive shouldery moves on bad footholds, it then leads into continuous technical climbing with some really long moves on goodish holds to finish... ...I'm well happy to have made the 5th ascent."
Stewart is no stranger to hard sport climbing, Tao is his sixth route of F8c or above. He's also no slouch on the boulders too - last year he made the fourth ascent of Ben Moon's Voyager (Font8b) at Burbage.
