Flake felt very dodgy. Another classic Bowden 6a+ sandbag..!!

Really good problem but I can't see that flake being there much longer...

Couldn't figure out how to get off the sloper to go up for the left hand flake, people talk of jumping, they must be very tall! Harder than 6a+ given.

Fantastic problem - but way harder then 6a+ and its a route the top out is like 15m
