7m. Climb Flake Climb but boldly venture up the wall (about 3m tall) right of the final flake.
A very significant lead by a local expert who spent the summer bivouacking in The Valley. Probably the hardest on gritstone anywhere at the time, it was dismissed by many who thought it impossible for the day and was omitted in the 1961 guidebook until its rediscovery by Al Manson in 1977.

Roy Hields 1953.
