VS 4b Zelda

"Bold and sustained" the guide book said. It was not lying! A couple of the moves seem more difficult than they are but good holds do materialize.

The climb is somewhat enhanced by the Peregrine falcons swooping noisily about. On this particular ascent they kindly left a dead mouse close to the end of the first pitch.

Fallen Block Buttress
VS 4b Night Rider

A slightly bold start that leads to an enjoyable laybacky crack climb.

Thu 1st Jun 2017 - Wynd Cliff
E1 5a The Firebird

A thin crack at the beginning was a manageable start but soon became tricky with suspect flakes and only the occasional micro-nut as pro throughout the mid section. An exposed grapple over a bulge led to a nice groove to layback up and then blocks to scamper up to finish.
