First clean 6a. Remarkably good gear at the crux!

Hadn't meant to try this one, but someone needed to get back the gear for Brian! 1 fall before I could get a hand on the narrow ledge. Re-lead from rest position just below and got clean to the top - but annoyingly I guess that has to count as dogged!

Couldn't commit. Will try again!

Easy on second, after lack of gumption for move to ledge on the lead..
cornishben - 2nd O/S - 05/Aug/10 with Gareth Pratt

Clean, but in an odd style. Top roped up to (Ben's excellent) pre-placed gear at the crux, and lead the rest. Made a bit of a meal of getting stood on the ledge!

Found the move to stand on the small ledge very hard - tried several ways but eventually took a rest on the rope before solving it :(

Found this very hard, the crux is balancy and delicate. I thought there would be a good jam at the top of the crack - but no, then I thought maybe there would be a rest at the niche, but it's not a good one. I've now done every starred route at Wyndcliffe, but still have to lead a few of them.
