Just looked in my 1986 guide FA list. I noted 'supersedes Topless Woman and Stennis Grey'.|

Loundsy, re your comment on Topless Woman:
> this route appears in the 1982 supplement, but is not in subsequent guides. It climbs the area to the right of Hercules, possibly taking similar ground to Flash. (I'm not sure this route exists? surely its not climbed often)
Flash does indeed supersede Topless Woman. I was on my own at Stennis Head one day when Nipper H and Martin Crocker appeared. I'd not met Martin before and Nipper introduced him as:
'The Bristol hot-shot'.
I said 'I thought that was you, Nipper'.
He replied 'So did I!'
Anyway, Nipper made short work of Flash, a route that quite a few folk had tried, and Martin and I followed. My hazy memory is that there was possibly another route somewhere there that didn't have a lower section and that Flash may coincide with that too?
