Climbed the crux starting moves earlier in the day. Last climb of the day in the late afternoon sun, great fun, a good first trad day of the year.

despite having worked out the start moves for windhover earlier in the day, I still had to try three times before I got up on this last route of the day. The rest was very pleasant.

Can't really claim an onsight as I've already done Windhover. Awesome finish, though I did get a bit lost.
dom94 - Lead - 01/Jul/14 with Leo Hawthorne
The start is nails! 6a? Got it clean but it wasn't easy! May be some more holds have fallen off? First hard sequence to get the right foot on the good foothold, second hard sequence to get the finger jug next to the peg. After that it's plain sailing, only about HVS with perhaps a 5b sequence going over a bulge at the end, but very pleasant airy climbing. Phil had a right mare seconding and Ed wisely declined! On the whole, a very unbalanced route and although enjoyable on the top section I wouldn't say it's a Top 50 on Peak lime but worth a couple of stars. Abbed off Scoop Wall at 10.30pm and just made it to the Moon as it was about to close! Home for 1.30am - another great evening session.

Done before, remember start was hard, now its desperate! Frigged to jug, need to see how its done again. Rest is 5a/5b.

Led on Daves gear. Tough moves to begin with, then a bit of poor ropework early on meant that the final pull through the overhang was a lot tougher than it needed to be due to rope drag. Lesson learnt...

Brilliant!! (mainly o/s but had done start of Windhover before which is the crux) fantastic upper wall traverse with loads of good natural gear there is no real need to clip the rusty pegs or the fluttery symbol in the latest rockfax guide. 3 star stuff :)

Not exactly onsight - had just seconded Windhover which made a big difference - but still got gripped on the traverse. Ran out of draws, almost ran out of strength on the final awkward crack/bulge

Very good route. Probably is E2 IF there wasn't a really handy peg to protect the bottom, very polished section. The upper section is excellent HVS / E1 climbing with in situ pegs and plenty of other gear potential.
