[Reaching the belay on Bloody Slab, 2 kb]The finest route on the right-hand side of the West Buttress tackles the clean red slab. Approach - Start by scrambling high up the Western Terrace to a point below the right edge of the slab. 1) 5b, 30m. Pull up, then traverse up leftwards to a flake. Move up over a bulge, then continue up leftwards to a small overhang. Pull round this and belay in a shallow corner (peg). 2) 5b, 25m. Traverse left and up to a rib, then move left again to reach a grassy gully. 3) 35m. The rib above leads to easier ground and the top. Descent - Continue up the head right and skirt around to the top of the Western Terrace. © ROCKFAX
