Flimston Crack** VD
[Flimston Crack, 2 kb]A delightful pitch on which you can wander anywhere you like. It is a curiously-named pitch since it doesn’t really follow any single crack. Starting from the ledge, climb diagonally rightwards up a crack. Then make a series of moves upwards crossing several more cracks (and runner placements). Eventually you arrive at a wider diagonal crack leading to the top. © ROCKFAX

Wasn't sure whether I would be able to do this and nearly chickened out! Abseiled down and stood in a crack in the rock. Belayed for Steve. Did the climb at ease - encountered one difficulty. Felt brilliant when I got to the top!
kblake - 2nd O/S - 11/Jul/10 with Steve Blake

Surrisingly difficult. Mainly due to lack of easy gear. Think this was because it was my first slab and because I wasn't used to limestone.
