Tough crux (pinky mono!) but well protected and short. Made no easier due to being full of old leaves and brambles!

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.
