Ticklists: Every Climb at Windgather.

dom_joyce265 15/Jul Solo O/S

Done for Windgather challenge in which I climbed every climb at Windgather in a day. Final time was 2 hours and 17 minutes. Think we did four extra climbs than the ones on this list (perhaps variations that are in the newer guides?)

Gets HS in the BMC guide, so put a rope on. Needn't have bothered, it was probably easier than Middle Triplet.

Solo clean on sight. Easy up to the start of the overhang, then very committing. Rested on a ledge to the right before going for it up the arête. Western Grit 2003 gives this S 4a.

Very short route. Mostly quite straightforward, the grade is from the overhanging 'prow' at the top. Quite a fun little climb. (too short though!)

It is necessary to climb over a large loose block which provides the only protection - so a bit dangerous - technically no harder than R Triplet Crack.

Solo'd under impression was a Severe 4a from 2009 ed. western grit. Felt hard and energetic for a severe on the pull through of overhang (interesting sequence) - not sure its really a HS as written here though.
