Vanguard E3 6a
[Vanguard, Cheddar, 3 kb]Start at an obvious flake-crack near the arete of Sentinel / Mescalito and just to the right of a line of staples.
Climb to the top of the flake (peg). Move up left to small jugs and pockets. Make a hard move up to a break. Another pull gains a good flake. Move up to a small roof and pull through rightwards to an easy finishing corner. Old 8mm bolt abseil station on the left or top out
