One of the best of Dartmoor's fun micro classics. Short, sharp and exciting. Start on boulders under the ledge below the right-slanting flake that strikes out from the base of a steep offwidth. Move onto the ledge and make a tough swing out right before continuing along the flake rail to a tricky move up a short crack to finish. Fun. © Rockfax
UKC Logbook Description
Once voted the best VS in the country! Perhaps a somewhat bold statement but a very good short route none the less. Suspension Flake goes up the huge jug filled flake on the Eastern face of the Perched Block. Those with confidence will lock their arms out and find this easy, but otherwise intimidating and pumpy!
Step onto a ledge then swing wildly on to the flake line to finish up a final short crack. A fine line which is over far to soon!
Birds nesting in starting crack best to keep clear
