<< Slight of Hand
Lorna's Lunch >>
|22m. A hard problem on the blank slice of slab immediately right of Slight of Hand. Start just left of the foot of the grassy ramp, at a sapling. Climb up directly above the sapling, passing just right of the big horizontal slot, and make thin, insecure moves, on almost non-existent holds, straight up to an incipient hairline crack. After a couple more hard moves the crack widens to form a good fingerhold and nut placement. Finish easily up the wide cracks, as for Slight of Hand. |

This climb is in 7 logbooks, and on no wishlists.

Much harder without the miniscule holds chalked, despite being on top rope. Would be very testing (and scary) as a pure onsight. On reflection, probably E4 6a.

Not warmed up enough - no real holds, pure smearing although is it possible to have 6a moves on this angle of slabs?

Could these be those elusive 6a slab moves at FCQ? Maybe - need some feedback.

A scary solo. Maybe ok on the lead; between the slot at 3m and the good fingerlock there's a microwire placement which looks reasonable. If it turns out to be good, then maybe E2 6a?
