[Faith and friction on a gritstone slab., 3 kb]20m. Good but devious, and hard! Pull through the bulge then cross the overhang by baffling moves to access the base of the slab. Climb The Mincer a short distance, step back onto the slab as for Smear Test but climb up and right (almost as far as the crack Ð side runner) then finish back leftwards. © ROCKFAX
