Climb direct to the break and pull over to a junction with Breamtime. Finish over the arch. Pumpy and high in the grade.

The route was not a one move link between No Hiding Plaice and Breamtime as it was done before Breamtime! If anything Breamtime was the true direct start.
Gary Gibson - 03/Nov/03

Oh by the way, this 'new' finish was the finish done as part of Breamtime and was only 7a/7a+ when it originally done.
Gary - 05/Jan/04
