[feelin' bold, 3 kb]20m. A delicate line up the right hand edge of the slab. Climb carefully to a break then traverse rightwards to the first bolt. Thin moves (harder for the short) lead up to the second bolt, followed by an easier run-out to the top. Bolted lower off. Direct start done 04/04/86.

My second E1. Almost bottled it due to the first bolt being half way up! But decided to go for it. A steady (but scary!) plod to the first bolt, a brilliantly thin crux move then it's all about holding it together to the top.

Cardi - Lead O/S - 02/Jun/10 with Tom R

First did it on the same weekend two years ago. The couple of moves past the first bolt are by far the hardest and are obviously well protected. Didn't bother taking any gear though there are a couple of bits before the first bolt which might hold - it's no more than 4c to there though.

RocknRoll - Lead O/S - 19/Jul/08 with Rob Gibson

First tried to lead this when it was really wet, couldn't get the crimps to stick my feet with all the water coming out of my boots. Came off at the first bolt and decided to wait for it to dry out a bit :( Came back an hour later after Mike had lead it and quickly managed the second, no worries. Doh!

Straightforward if slightly unnerving climbing. Slate slopers, hmmmm... Two reachy moves on it but both of them are near the bolts and can be bypassed by judicious application of footwork. E1 5b in Slate guide and North Wales Select.

First ascent of PYB week. A good shake down, and fantastic intro to slate. Could not believe how little the holds were, and how much you could pull on them.

Brilliant slab route initially lead by Nick Bird who then set up the top rope (with a v.Bold run-out in a couple of places!), nice moves required at the crux which is just after the first bolt, neat footwork required with a bit of smearing on crimpy holds :-)

Rather out of our league at the time - requiring a delicate solo to ? 8m ?! before the first bolt. We both tried leading it, but only got as far as the 2nd bolt before giving up and soloing back down.
