Rockfax Description
The tall straight flake is wide, awkward and slippery but cams in the horizontal breaks make it safe enough. Swarm up the flake to a high ledge with a huge wobbly block and finish up the short wall behind, or step left onto the arete for more exposure. © Rockfax

βeta: The polish stops after the awkward move; there are tales in that somewhere. I backed off this on a grey, damp, November day a few months after starting to climb (severe!). Great to finally do it.
