|14m. Approach the roof with trepidation then follow the main flake rightwards to the lip and a difficult final move to sensibly angled ground. Escape up and left to finish or climb a shallow groove - The Fantasy Finish, 5b. © ROCKFAX|

awesome route did it ground up 3rd or 4th go. really pumpy and decent gear the higher you go up the flake. 5b is totally laughable. Its 5c in the guide and its a fierce one at that!

E4 5b probably descibes this well. Watch out placing cams in that flake it's thinner than sin!
