A fantastic, but often frustrating and energy sapping route which is getting rather polished. 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. Direct finish - straight up from the top of the groove.
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.
I think Yew is the left one from memory, I chose the wall right of the groove, and also thought it was exciting (and dirty)...
Upper wall de-turfed (might still be a bit dusty) and new thread last w/e. The stuck wire is trashed - needs tapping out with a hammer if you're passing.
