a good line up the slab to the right of fools gold, solstice, equinox etc. Finishes just right of the clump of trees at the top of the slab. 2 bolts and a double bolt lower off. Start below the first bolt, move up and slightly rightwards to a tricky move at 5m to gain a good hand traverse leading left to the first bolt. A tricky move between the 2 bolts leads to the second bolt and, after a long run out, the top.

Easy up till the first bolt and not to scary because of good holds.5b between the bolts then easy to the top. Wet holds by the lower off make it scary! Wouldn't want to fall off !!!

didnt like that much (actually i did): v scary up top (should have read the guide 'not a place to be when its wet'). wet holds and loose shoe lace made it feel pretty serious. i bypassed the loose flake as i think any gear would have ripped so last gear was the top bolt. very worthwhile.
