The Flakes** E2 5c
[Chris coming across the rising traverse of 'The Flakes', 3 kb]2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A good line following the obvious flaky feature.
1) 5c, 20m. Make a hard start up the Windhover arete (good wires) to a peg. Then trend leftwards under the roofs and finish with a tricky traverse to a neat hanging stance.
2) 4c, 10m. Step round left into the easy corner to finish. © ROCKFAX

Led as one big pitch but only really an on-sight of the cop out pitch as previously on-sighted the first pitch doing the direct version which is way better.
