Braille Trail*** E7 6c
[Braille trail in for a winter ascent, 2 kb]10m.

Rockfax Description
The well-named line of pebbles and creases crossing the north face are followed to the arete (poor hand-placed blade peg and six-inch-nail runners). Climb desperately into the thin crack and finish easily out in the void. The direct line has been climbed as Grandad's Slab, E7 6c, but it has lost a crucial pebble. © ROCKFAX
