[Sweet Baby James, Craig Cywarch, 3 kb]43m. A delightful and substantial route, that unusually for Craig Cwarch, is clean and easy to approach and descend from. Spaced gear and interesting climbing. Start on the S-facing sidewall left of Will O'The Wisp. Climb a faint groove beneath a large roof, trending left to bypass some bulges, until beneath the main slab. Climb this past crucial cams to an overlap and step left to a ledge. Step up and traverse thoughtfully back right to the edge of the buttress. Finish directly up the clean crest to a convenient tree.
