Whispering Wind* E1 5a
[Rough Seas at St. Govan's East, 2 kb]27m.

Rockfax Description
Another good line. Engage the arete from under the initial overhang, and follow the cracks in the right side of the arete, passing a good ledge, to finish up a groove on the right (taking care with the rock). © ROCKFAX

Very enjoyable
Tim Sparrow - 27/Aug/15 with Ian Armstrong

Amazing juggy climbing to get round onto the right of the arÍte! Another awkward move to get back onto the left side of the arÍte later. Finished directly up the prow of the arÍte because it was both logical and spectacular!

really fun climbing a very cool arete move interchangeable with rear wind, i think a move right to a shallow corner which turns out to be a flake seems a logical finish
