My first ever E2 5c onsight! Very well protected with cool moves on the crux. Sun on my back and second climb of the day.

Overall a fairly easy E2. The crux section (moving up and right near the start of the proper groove) has the 5c moves and is fall-offable, but the route has gear and isn't particularly sketchy. Very nice

Seconded this two years ago. Brilliant route, bold start is safe enough if you look hard enough for gear. Crux was well protected and enjoyable.

Sues birthday. Got stuck at the crux in a very poor rest for a long time - went into a mental cul de sac. Solution as ever obvious when i finally made it.
Good to get a new tick at Wynd Cliff after 35 years climbing there.
Ian Stirrups - Lead O/S - 15/Aug/14 with Sue
It's 3 stars from me. Amazing pitch, nice moves all the way through. Bold start its not that bad - one tricam and couple of small wires.

Similar in grade and style to Firebird to the right, but with less loose rock, more flowing sequence, and really well protected. Guide said run-out, but I placed bomber small nuts at least every two metres the whole lower section. Safe, solid, with a crux that takes unlocking but is definitely at the lower limit of the grade. Definitely worth doing, and if you are thinking about Firebird, skip it and do this instead!

Really enjoyed this route, which is low in the grade IMO. I didn't think the first bit was particularly bold - certainly less bold and somewhat easier than The Firebird which only gets E1 5a.
