16m. Hard for the grade. The hanging flake on the left wall of the grassy groove is approached up a short corner and gives tricky but short-lived laybacking. Choose an exit - care required.

Both my Mate and I tried to get established on the flake and failed.
Go on then what's the trick?

The trick is commitment: get high with help from the footholds on the right until you can undercut and layback out on the spaced thin slots. A great problem shame about the loose top-out.

Good climbing in the flake, downclimbed from the undercut to the ledge cos of looking for gear for too long but just went for it after that. Agree with the above, shame about the rest of the route.
