Rockfax Description
A poorer right-hand version keeps close to the edge of the wall. Avoiding the crack of the next route is tricky. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
Start as for Flataback, but move right at the bulge

Nice, spooky last move on the solo but not too high, thankfully.

Reasonably sustained. Felt a bit eliminate though.
graphiclunarkid - 2nd O/S - 17/May/11 with Adam Carless

very awkward & artificial to stay out of the crack, couple of nice moves though.

Went for Flataback and attempted the move 5 or 6 times before completing a right side variant to it. Which still had me gripped. (Flataback was E1 in guide and E3 on UKC?) What I did appears to be this but was harder than 4c for sure. - Scared.
