Golden Yardstick*** VS 5a
[Beryl Turner leading Golden Yardstick. VS 5a. Wildcat Crags., 2 kb]44m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A superb second pitch follows the hanging rib right of Manx.
1) 4b, 14m. Climb onto a pedestal then continue up the groove to a bizarre stance in a unique cave.
2) 5a, 30m. Climb up right then traverse left above the cave to access the right wall of the hanging prow. Follow this with interest to a possible stance and finish up the wide crack of Manx over on the left. © ROCKFAX

Led P2 again. Was stupidly hot - got pumped silly on the crux (think I was being a bit cocky as well as had no problem last time) so backed off, down climbed to my gear and got lowered to the cave in shame. Had a bit of a moan, cooled down then did it no problem. Still a brilliant route, loved it and looking forward to doing it again...

BeccaSnowden - 2nd O/S - 22/Apr/11 with Tom

I did the first pitch (completing Lobo) before Keir took over for P2 & the crux - getting onto the prow above the cave - "terrifying" - a very stretchy placement of a hex before clinging onto the wall and moving up to a good jug just before it goes over the top to join up with Manx - great second - including hanging from one arm & knees bent (yes, I looked like a monkey!) in order to wriggle loose the first hex.

Tomber - AltLd O/S - 10/Nov/10 with Stuart Hurworth

Lead first pitch. Second pitch was easier than it looks, with lots of good hand holds where needed, though hard to spot on the oddly textured wall. Step across was good once hand hold was spotted, few moves above seemed challenging! Excellent.
