A good strenuous pitch, well protected too. Start up the leaning flake system then pull out left on to the wall and up to a rest. Climb the flakes round the edge of the roof then continue until forced to traverse left below the shrubbery to Zombie.

The "leaning flake system" is indeed awkward. I found this much harder than the upper laybacking, which was great fun!

Pretty damn strenuous, but no polish and superb gear.

Great route. Pumpy as hell though. Great protection and never too serious but keeps coming at you.
