Rockfax Description
A fantastic, but often frustrating and energy sapping route. Very safe, but strenuous to make it so. Climb to the groove and bridge up this until a layback sequence is demanded. If successful, move left to easier climbing leading to the break. It is also possible to climb straight up from the top of the groove at the same overall grade, but with more hard moves. © Rockfax

βeta: Often feels greasy perhaps due to proximity of tree. Last moves up the wall right of the groove are exciting which I assumed was the finish - not knowing what a yew tree looks like and there being 2 trees to head for maybe I went the wrong way.
