Who was the asshole who cut down the giant beech tree? Not cool.

Fun route!

I don't have a problem with the tree, but I got a problem with the shitty anchors. Unless you put some chains on it, they are too far apart and and the crappy single biner system puts some serious kinks in your rope

Someone stole the draws that I left.

Well, this felt harder that 10c to me. Did some hold break? The little bulge was hard pulling for me. Sorry, but I broke off a biggish foot hold at the top. Some of the rock is still a bit rotten.

just bring up some longish draws for the anchors. No one should be tr-ing on the biners in the anchors anyway. Rap down to clean.

need 24" slings to have a safe top rope. two short draws are almost 180 degrees, very bad. Great route. worth the quarter.

Great movement. This one seemed a bit harder to me than Melancholy Mechanics, which was also a sweet route.

Watch out for shitty rock before the first bolt. Almost got impaled on the stump...

Another hour of cleaning and this would be a good route.

This thing is definitely good now! 4star 10d.

Really mellow climbing to an obvious crux. The rock down bottom is solid now and, aside from water dripping from the top after a heavy rain, this route is awesome.

5 stars. Really fun, good route finding required if the chalk is washed off. You may find the bolt spacing a bit airy if 5.10d is at your limit.
