Rockfax Description
A good strenuous pitch, well protected too. Start up the leaning flake system then pull out left on to the wall and up to a rest. Climb the flakes round the edge of the roof then continue until forced to traverse left below the shrubbery to Zombie. © Rockfax

βeta: The "leaning flake system" is indeed awkward. I found this much harder than the upper laybacking, which was great fun!

masa-alpin 7 Jul, 2011 Lead dog At the top, I went off route towards Lime St Direct, then had to reverse a couple of metres of hard moves (5c), and at the last moment during climbing down I grabbed the top quickdraw... The top runner itself was at potentially off-route and the move to just reach was tough, so my second Lee left it and I had to return and retrieve it, belayed by Lee at the belay stance. A micro epic. Brilliant route, though!
