TDSvejstrup 16 May, 2016 Lead O/S probably the 2nd best HVS at the crag, the flake is definitely still there contrary to what the comment says a few below mine.

steveb2006 7 Aug, 2014 Lead Didnt realise flake now missing and in the end grovelled up the groove (where flake was?) after the move out left - disappointing. The right edge of the groove seemed too poor and green to be able to layback up it (tho good pocket on wall to right).

ripper 12 Sep, 2009 Lead Took a couple of looks at the swing up and left before committing to it, and thankfully had the right piece of gear to bang in - once protected from a ground fall it was very satisfying!
