Rockfax Description
Originally given E4 6a, but lack of attention and subsequent loss of holds made a more serious proposition; now top end E5. Make very bold moves to pegs (stick-clip them or use a bouldering mat for E4 ). Move right to a groove and climb up to the break. Poor lower-off, better to finish up The Flakes Direct. © Rockfax

Stick clipped gear at start. Still exciting. Finished up Flakes Direct. Feels like a big route.

E4 with pad sounds right. Pretty good and nice history tick

Ground Up. fell off start once. The upper section has lots of holds and gear but all a bit loose. Not as good as the other extreme rock ticks here

Above pads, I quite like my ankles...
