Rockfax Description
The long line of weakness on the left of the face is a very difficult but high quality climb that is high in the grade. Start on a raised ledge left of the largest arching overhang.
Climb a thin crack and slab to meet the left-trending thin crack-line at a peg and better gear. Follow the line all the way, passing two pegs at two-thirds height where the most difficult climbing is encountered. The top section of rock, past a final peg is slightly loose. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The pegs have now been removed on creeping flesh (Oct 14) It has now been without them...It now offers a bolder proposition requiring a more sustained effort... For any aspirant leaders it should now be approached as hard E5 (E6?) 6b the crux is much bolder without its 2 pegs and more airtime awaits those who fluff it! A good stash of rps plus 3 sets of small to med nuts up to no6 are advised along with plenty of QD's (No cams needed) Stu

Ged Desforges ?? TR I flailed around on second after olly did the business. He seemed adamant it was e5, but I thought it felt quite full on, probably e6 for a proper onsight. Immaculate climbing, with enough gear. The crux was toe pain.
