Bran Flake, Holyhead Mountain

Holyhead Mountain was the viable option and choice of interest. Initially, 'The Cursing', VS 4c, proved to be good value climbing on compact rock. We then moved across to Yellow Wall where Steve Joynson led 'Bran Flake', E2 5b, ground-up. The route is described as a pushy test piece.
