Thyrus* S 4a
One of the hardest Whitestone routes to get to, right in the middle of the cliff with much to-ing and fro-ing to avoid various holes on the approach. Best approached from the Night Watch end of the crag as there's a big pit next to the route in the other direction, but a bit of a nightmare when the nettles are at their worst.
Start in a corner behind the huge boulder. Climb the corner, using curious holes on the left wall. Move left at a small grassy ledge, below a tree and attendant vegetation. Climb the wall (spaced protection); the old alternative of sticking to the corner is now impractical due to vegetation. At the top of the wall, move up and left towards the arete, which is reached just above a small hawthorn (secateurs useful). The guidebook finish is up the slab on the right - yes, the one that's covered in shrubbery. So stick to the right side of the arete instead.

Nice little route, probably not worth its star though. Good time of year to do it, the nettles haven't arrived yet!
