[Me setting off on pitch one of the flakes, 2 kb]2 pitches. 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

P1. 3rd time doing that rubbish start and climb it different everytime. The Flakes crux feels quite urgent, someone needs to take those pegs out, what is the point. . .

Lead P2. Nice first pitch. Loose but very exposed second pitch. Not made any easier by James forgetting the big wires...
