27m. Start behind the large tree (Now gone). Climb to a ledge and follow a vague groove to a peg, then step left and climb up to reach another peg. Move up to a further peg then step left and continue steeply to the top.
Very well protected!

Did not start would be more accurate. About the only thing my ascent had in common with Bird Scarer is that my route must have crossed Bird Scarer at some point.

Great friction, nice moves. Easy to wander off onto a nearby route though. Torchlight ascent with Mark and Ray. Didn't find any move harder than 5a so maybe I was off route

Repeat ascent it's that good. Description is wrong regarding the pegs of which only the lower one is still available. Never E2, 5c. More like E1, 5b.

I think I must have wandered around too much, didn't find anything like a 5c move.

I was intending to do 'Let your Fingers do the Walking' but somehow lost the way and ended up on Bird Scarer.

Repeated again as it is so good. Worth a few stars!

Probably did an combination ascent of Bird Scarer/Blinding Flash, as the best line goes that way. The holds not as polished as other routes on the slab, and very good gear if you can trust it!

Went off route about half way up. Must remember to head for the HVD escape rather than the E3 in future. Has the Bird Scarer - Flashdance link up been done before?!

Might have gone off route but it felt at about the right grade. Quite poor and escapable for the hard part.
