Went to do Strike, but half way way up realised this was the only option. Due to a rock fall a couple of years ago, Strike has been regraded at VS 4C in the Wye Valley suppliment and you have to do the direct start as discribed in the original guide. Nice route in style, but a lot of loose rock. A fair grade due to the amount of unstable blocks. There is a lot of loose rock when topping out and due to the length of the pitch not much rope left (with a 50m rope) if you want to belay off a more solid tree than the yew at the top. The views across the wye valley are great,but does not earn a star

really nice route, needs another star! not sure if the crux was the "direct bit" or a bit further up. VS; really?

Nice clean climb obvious corner, completed the more direct 4 c varriant by just sticking to the crack. Good pro and solid hold make for a very nice climb

Direct line is nice

First climb for 6 months so bit of a struggle. Backed off leading the original version when I realised the flake had disappoeared on the traverse...

the 4c section was pretty tough, and the 4b sections were no pushover either though not too hard once worked out! Typically relentless Wyndcliff - 24 items of gear most of the on the lower half.
