I'd previously done the start (shared with Golden Yardstick) and the finish (shared with Lynx) but the rest was onsight! Had wondered if it was worth bothering with for so little new climbing, but glad I did. Rather than continue to the zig zag crack, I climbed onto the flake block and up from there, only joining Lynx at the wide crack. The start is fairly desperate, maybe HS 4c overall.

nameless_rob - 2nd - 21/Jul/13 with Mel, Johanna

jenny lead to warm up, jen found a nicer truer line. making the climb more than "lynx Direct". after tree branch anchor, keep left for jugs footholds all the way to the top out block. much nicer this way
Lukem6 - AltLd rpt - 14/Jul/13 with Jenny Monkey

stayed left of lynx, climbing face until last big ledge before top. felt like a more honest line.

1st VS route. Keir led p1, before I did p2 - then I completed p1 as first pitch of our next route: Golden Yardstick. Nice route on both pitches, plenty of options for feet, hands and gear. Shared top of P2 with leader from Lynx - so I took a more restricted route to the left & away from the main grove

Lead second pitch. Quite easy, though got dark before I had topped out. Loses a star for being soily at the moment
Tomber - AltLd O/S - 14/Oct/10 with Stuart Hurworth

Lead pitch 1, required thought on my part, a lot more in your face than some other routes at wildcat (at least p1). Still found top out challenging.
