27m. Start behind the large tree (Now gone). Climb to a ledge and follow a vague groove to a peg, then step left and climb up to reach another peg. Move up to a further peg then step left and continue steeply to the top. Very well protected!

Repeat ascent
Sean Kelly - Lead - 19/Aug/13 with Harry Pearce

Repeated again as it is so good. Worth a few stars!
Sean Kelly - Lead - 02/May/13 with Harry Pearce

Probably did an combination ascent of Bird Scarer/Blinding Flash, as the best line goes that way. The holds not as polished as other routes on the slab, and very good gear if you can trust it!

Went off route about half way up. Must remember to head for the HVD escape rather than the E3 in future. Has the Bird Scarer - Flashdance link up been done before?!

My first E2, and on sight! Amazing fun, rock was grippy today, and it was sunny.

Might have gone off route but it felt at about the right grade. Quite poor and escapable for the hard part.
