Flying Butt* E3 5c
[Mark flying buttres direct, 2 kb]25m.

Rockfax Description
A bizarre route, said to be the longest roof pitch on grit and not one for a busy day. From the start of Kirkus's Corner make an awkward move out left then traverse the lip of the roof all the way to a finish up the left arete. © ROCKFAX

Why isn't this 3 stars? Was fully inverted with high heel hooks at the start, was hanging on the break in mid air after cutting loose and had a lie down in the break halfway up Flying Buttress Direct. Super.
