Brilliant pitch with spicily spaced bolts. I lowered off from central sadness P1 but still climbed most of the independent stuff and took some exciting pendulums stripping the draws. f6c+ or E4.1

A safer way to enjoy the central sadness top crack. When the bottom half cleans up this will be a three star route. The top 20m or so is the best climbing I have done on slate, that crack is amazing

Broke a hold off on the top crux just before moving left to join the top finger crack of central sadness. Crux has defiantly been made harder. Great technical moves low down and big ass rock overs high up. Found clipping the second bolt pretty gripping. Draw was pre-placed on this bolt. Top finger crack of central sadness is also fantastic.
