45m. Climb thin corner crack running straight up the face right of Flake route. "Superb"

...Worthy of the stars. Sustained HS for much of the first 2/3s of the route... (Mike)

Had to do as 2 pitches since forgot to take enough gear. Was going to carry on and lead second half as well, but nowhere sensible to belay, so built a fully hanging one, after which I realised it would be a total nightmare getting Flicka onto that and me leading the rest, so she led the top bit.
