ruined by top rope scum
Stanners - 27/Sep/14

Max it looks like Barking Variation VDiff. See the link above from the South Devon Mountaineering Club and it seems to be illustrated on their topo.

Between Dandelion and Barking crack there is a leftward slanting flake. I would say about Severe grade. It is not on UKC or in the Cordee guide book. Anybody know if it has a name? Seems to obvious a feature not to.

Seems to be significantly more polished then when I first climbed here (2004ish), not surprising really considering its popularity.
