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