12m. up a well protected flake. At the top you must scramble through a bramble bush that'll leave you looking like you've been in a bag full of cats. Big old tree for belay (and/or abseil).

Alan decided to go for the original finish - far from recommendable.
pheotleyr 15 Dec, 2012 Lead O/S a minor, but worthwhile variaton, traversing out left from 'Flake Crack' already below the top of the crack - pass the blank wall to the left using an undercut (and whatever else you can find) to reach jugs on the left-hand arete of the wall, make use of them to establish yourself on Securicor and finish up on that climb. VS 4c maybe, looks more exciting than it actually is, but reasonably nice.
