Zigzag Flake Crack** VS 4b
[Layback up Zigzag flake crack, 2 kb]20m. The tall and straight flake is awkward, slippery and not too well protected. Improvise up this to a ledge on top of the flake and finish up the short wall behind, or step left onto the arete for more exposure. It was also known as The Great Flake for years. © ROCKFAX

Massive flake - almost a stack. Size 6 dragon cam wasn't big enough! Some medium cam placements on the main wall and on the actual flake itself (size 2/3 dragon cams fitted well). Moves weren't too bad since there was plenty of rest positions.

Led after my partner decided it wasn't the day. Good cam placements if you step up for them before going for the crux. Off widthed the next section because I was feeling runout even though the face climbing looked easier. Nice route. An exciting ride for those who have the guidebook which gives it S.

Found there to be plenty of gear. Enjoyable route, although i did get a lttle swallowed by the crack, and at one point wondered if i would leave my leg behind in it.
AlexxelA - Lead O/S - 02/Jun/12 with Paul Deane

found the move around the bulge rather puzzling/ hard, sweaty hands were slipping in the heat, solved it by a classic knee-jam in the end (laybacking hurts less than jamming until you fall off). would say that protection is more than adquate on the entire climb (contrary to what the guidebook says)
GermanAlex - Lead O/S - 29/May/12

Really enjoyable, delicate, climbing. When it seems blank you take a breath, step out onto the wall and layback up: leaving the few bits of gear there are depressingly/exileratingly near the ground.

Very wet misty day so this was a bit of a fight! Excellent climb though. Apart from the very large hex at the bottom I only got cams in all the way up! Most of them stayed in.....

Zigzag Flake Crack 20mts VS 4b 2star The crux involves (the book says) ‘A strangely straight awkward flake, not too well protected…..’ It was, it was and it was! Getting past the problem meant me going above my gear and stepping out onto (in a hugging position) the rounded bit of the flake, then a huge struggle come wobble come flail & scrabble saw me up onto the next bit of the thing! Then up another 2-3mts before gaining a ledge to get some gear in – phew! Then there was a vertical (but protectable) wall to climb to finish – yikes what a route! Lost some more skin there….again!

I've got this climb as Robin Hood Flake Crack in the BMC guide, but the line I drew in the GB matches this route as shown in the RF GB. I finished this route rightwards. The first ascent I did on this route I finished to the left at the top of the flake.
