Windhover** E2 5c
[me falling off, 3 kb]11m.

Rockfax Description
11m. Another fine climb that feels run out at the start if the true line is adhered to. Climb cautiously up the white groove and wall to reach the base of a steep finger crack, arrange protection then confidently blast up the crack to a good jug and the top. © ROCKFAX

Really good fun, like bouldering on a rope. Thought it was tough for 5c, but well protected.

I need to visit climbing walls. The start described in the guide is a bit pointless. (Read I wimped out and came in from the HVS)

Was a little uncertain of where to start but the finish is pretty obvious. Didn't actually climb the hanging crack but used a small undercling just right of it to make a big move to a flake jug. Awesome final moves on a steep bit of rock with really good gear.
