βeta: Did The Chestnut Mare today - great moves, loved the top section round the last roof. An excellent addition to the growing number of routes at Winspit

βeta: The project through the roof over the entrance of the cave to the right of this route is now a 7b+ called "The Chestnut Mare", courtesy of Rob Kennard. Very short and powerful testpiece with really good moves. Lower off last bolt after getting the ledge above route. Scramble around,carefully, to retrieve last runner. Thanks to Matt King for bolting and opening the project. Damn to Kennard for beating me again!!

βeta: There's two ways to go at it i guess, either up through the thin crack to a good hold at top, or to venture out to the right. Either way its only tough for that move!

βeta: It took me four attempts on different visits to finally complete this route. I only managed it when I was comfortably climbing 6a. But I am short (5ft 8). The 6a's at Winspit are easier!
