Dates: 15 April to 15 July

Reason: Nesting Birds

Nesting birds, please avoid climbing Limbo and Beginnings 

20m. Start at the big tree, and climb leftwards over blocky ground, before climbing the red wall direct to a niche. Go steeply left then exit rightwards. Easy climbing for the grade, with the super grippy rock and positive holds making up for the boldness.

Note: Pegs and threads provide some protection, but may not take all krabs - a dmm spectre may not fit in the first peg but a phantom just fits.
