Whirlwind* E1 5c

Rockfax Description
This hybrid starts and finishes on other routes but there is some good independent climbing, and it should be of interest to those looking for something new on this wall. Start up Brazen Buttress then traverse up and left across the wall to the right-hand side of the pedestal. Climb direct up a crack above to join Tempest at its crux and finish up this. It originally finished left of Tempest but this is very artificial. The original start up the arch is worth about E3 5c and combining this with the direct finish to Brazen makes a decent and balanced E3 5c combination. © ROCKFAX

2 pitches - first pitch of Brazen Buttress. 2nd pitch, think Nik joined Tempest a bit early as the crack looked dirty.
