f5+ - The Flakes
Forest of Dean Bouldering Circuit f5
The Flakes is found at Huntsham on the Sliced Slug Boulder.
A quality 3 star group of 3 problems, all similar, all epic and burley at the grade! The closest thing you'll get to indoor bouldering (if thats your bag).
The Sliced slug boulder has so much to offer at different grades, got to be one of my favourite boulders by far!
3 lines, all f5+, There is a sit start at f6 to one of them also.
The topout is high, and especially un-nerving if this is your grade. My advice is, just downclimb if you are alone. I've been close to slipping at the top (silly mistake) and it would hurt a lot!
