βeta: In the topo the Flake is drawn wrong and climbs the obvious blind flake before trending left into the vaque scoop.

βeta: I was wondering that actually! Pete's groove (or whatever i did yesterday - maybe the flake) does feel like V4. it's the big-ish flake which becomes crimpier but more positive as a sidepull at the top and it's a long reach left to the top of the problem? Would make sense as the thing to the left looked harder and was from an undercut! i reckon the descriptions are correct but the lines on the topo need to be switched round??

catt 25 Jan, 2007 Sent x Originally climbed this thinking it was Pete's Groove, but the Rockfax guide has these two the wrong way around! Thought it was a bit easy for V6... Fun problem though, especially if you take the dynamic approach!
