Follow the flake then step left to finish.


are the lines for this and pete's grove miss drawn in the guide???

I was wondering that actually! Pete's groove (or whatever i did yesterday - maybe the flake) does feel like V4. it's the big-ish flake which becomes crimpier but more positive as a sidepull at the top and it's a long reach left to the top of the problem? Would make sense as the thing to the left looked harder and was from an undercut! i reckon the descriptions are correct but the lines on the topo need to be switched round??

yeah i got confused by this when i was down there. read the description at it all makes sense.

The flake is obvious, and a very nice V4, but is Pete's grove to the left or the right as there is an under cut both ways....

In the topo the Flake is drawn wrong and climbs the obvious blind flake before trending left into the vaque scoop.
