This is a classic easy route on the right side of the main face. Easily descerned by the tree about half way up. Looks harder form the road than it actually is. Descend using the cold shuts for rappel anchors and two ropes.

I followed for pitch one and then did my first ever lead on pitch two. definitely the longest climb i have ever done. fun to try and learn a bit about gear placing and belaying/anchors etc.
