Rockfax Description
A real classic and rite of passage which is hard work but well protected. Climb the short arete to runners, then lean out (large wire in the flake) and layback onto the flake. About face, and finish briskly. © Rockfax

βeta: I thought 6b, although admitedly don't have a lot of experience at flashing this grade. I'm quite short though and could only get two fingers on the bottom of the flake from the side-pull, so maybe the discrepancy in opinions in the grade is an arm span thing.

Misha 14 Jul, 2016 Lead dnf Hard but brilliant! Fell off the barndoorey layback flake a few times. Strenuous and technical but very safe. Pleased to get into the crack on the first go (great transfer onto a finger lock, not that hard as the feet stay on). Had a few goes but just couldn't crack it, even from sitting on the gear. Found a good way to place the gear though - LH palm up in the bottom of the diagonal crack, RF on the sloper below the hand jam break, LF flagging out L - this gave me plenty of reach, still a bit blind but the placements are good (cams 0.3 and 0.4 or nut 6ish (though didn't place it), cam 0.5 can be placed higher in the flake after moving below it but probably best not to as it gets in the way a bit). I was going high LH in the flake but in the photos some people are going high RH, might be something to try but ultimately RH needs to go in the pocket. Got to the pocket on the last go but still barn doored off. One to come back to!
