Rockfax Description
The long line of weakness on the left of the face is a very difficult but high quality climb that is high in the grade. Start on a raised ledge left of the largest arching overhang.
Climb a thin crack and slab to meet the left-trending thin crack-line at a peg and better gear. Follow the line all the way, passing two pegs at two-thirds height where the most difficult climbing is encountered. The top section of rock, past a final peg is slightly loose. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The pegs have now been removed on creeping flesh (Oct 14) It has now been without them...It now offers a bolder proposition requiring a more sustained effort... For any aspirant leaders it should now be approached as hard E5 (E6?) 6b the crux is much bolder without its 2 pegs and more airtime awaits those who fluff it! A good stash of rps plus 3 sets of small to med nuts up to no6 are advised along with plenty of QD's (No cams needed) Stu

Ticklists: Best slab climbs of the UK, West Country Climbs, Alex's Cornwall and Devon ticklist, Caff's 100 Ace E5s, Caff's 100 Best E5's, Ultimate E5 ticklist, The best the UK has to offer for beasts (apart from the lakes cos its always wet).

Hard. Puts routes at E1/E2 into perspective.

Well good. There is only 1 peg at about 1/3 height. Move fast to avoid foot agony!

Onsight, just- called for a tight rope but didn't need it. Can't imagine leading this, definitely the most mental route I have ever been on!

Harder and more sustained than I anticipated. Should have been right up my street but I don't think I could/would have led this.
