6m. right of Questor, 5ft left of the thin crack of Zulu. The slab has some suspect flakes, leading to ledges and a corner finish up a steep crack to the right.

lieraza 7 Oct, 2018 AltLd O/S Julio led basically everything, including an interesting diversion onto the E3 next door. I did the final bit to the top as Julio set up the belay a bit too early, an extremely short pitch but it packed a punch so I shall claim AltLead, even if it's pretty undeserved. We thought the whole route was pretty hard for the grade...

caradoc 31 Jul, 2016 2nd O/S Quite hard. One move above the grassy ledge was tricky. Wynd Cliff takes no prisinors. I was very nearly killed by a boulder released by my partner as he abseiled past a tree near the finish of Questor. Luckily he shouted and I jumped left as it hit the pile of ropes. Close call!

Neil Watson 26 Sep, 2015 2nd dog Yet another good lead from Aiden. Had a discussion regarding stars/grading. Worth maybe 2 possibly three but some of the loose rock detracts. It certainly is unrelenting and isn't a one move wonder. A mix of slabby at the start with little gear (a metre out to the left) and good vertical. A fair bit harder than the HVS 5a in the book when compared to Bitter Battle Tears etc: or are they just lower in the grade?

Phil Murray 17 May, 2014 Lead O/S Started in wrong place, on the E3 5c to the left. Mini epic completed, got down again-just. After a rest, tried again. Bold lower down, and a wobbly hold which i avoided due to no decent pro nearby. Joy to get the ledge at 15m; but then higher up the corner moves are HARD! esp. getting off the grassy ledge. Then a steep sting with peg below at the very top. Quality but my nerves were shot by the end! High end HVS.

squicky 29 Apr, 2014 2nd O/S Nice bold first section then great climbing up the wall and corners. Probably a lot harder to lead than second and could easily have been E1.

Different Steve 20 May, 2012 Lead O/S A brilliant route at the top of the grade with continuously interesting climbing. Not entirely obvious where to start - in the end I started pretty much as for Zulu because of a distinct lack of gear further left. Thin and committing moves lower down lead to well protected technical climbing and a steep finish.
