<< None < Central Buttress | Suspended Sentence > Oak Tree Zig Zag >>
One of Dartmoor's finest. A gritstonesque climb that packs in some athletic and technical moves. Start on a flat-topped block below the left end of the huge overhang in the centre of the main face. Photo opposite.
16m. Pull up directly into the corner, left of the overhang, and place some good gear before swinging out to the arete on a horizontal break just above the lip of the overhang. Gain a flake on the face around the arete and make a couple of tricky moves to leave it and enter the base of a good crack. Follow the crack to the top.

Looks unlikely when stood under the huge roof...The crux is deranged but brilliant.
