[Atherton Brothers & Phoenix Climb Shining Clough, 2 kb]20m. Climb the steep flake right of the chimney until it is possible to swing right to the wider continuation, threads. Finish up this in a superb situation. Awkward to protect in its lower reaches. © ROCKFAX

Found this a bit awkward for a Severe, the steep flake can be protected with the biggest cam in the world or an upside down nut over the top :)
