Flake Crack >>
[Back of Hanging Flakes boulder (Javu problem 87 - V4 6b), 3 kb]One of the best lines on the Moor is a stunning problem which is in all locals' top 10. Layback up the rounded left side of the arete to gain the first flake; get established on this and stretch up to the distant flake above. OK for the grade but high!

Although foot slipped at the top and grabbed the crack, so probably didnít get it, but I think I may have done the difficult bit.
