Mighty tasty Nescafe. Alex moving up from the flak...

Description 

Starts on the ground at Taster's Choice, but moves left to the first bolt. The route climbs slightly right of the 2nd & 3rd bolts to gain the small flake ledge (but not way right on the flake itself). It finishes up the left side of the rounded arete towards the top.


Location 

This is just left of Taster's Choice & about 20 feet right of Mild Hops.


Protection 

4 bolts to chains.

I love this climb. Not as sustained as Taster's Choice, but hitting the ledge and going up the corner and out onto the left face are great moves.

A fun line. Having watched many people climb this route I would say the natural line leads to the flake then to the ledge. I've done it both ways and eliminating the flake feels contrived and seemingly puts "off limits" holds which flow with the natural line. That being said i agree with pullhard about the upper moves.
