Originally given E4 6a, but lack of attention and subsequent loss of holds made a more serious proposition; now top end E5. Make very bold moves to pegs (stick-clip them or use a bouldering mat for E4 ). Move right to a groove and climb up to the break. Poor lower-off, better to finish up The Flakes Direct.

The crucial crimp is slowly disintegrating and the moves are now good 6b. Stick-clipping the pegs in the groove (which are still OK) or a bouldering mat would seem sensible!
