[Flimston Slab, 2 kb]A reasonably direct line, however donít worry if you stray off route, just enjoy the position. Start from the ledge in the centre of the face and climb up a crack to a diagonal break. Roughly follow the left-hand crack above then transfer to a wider crack which is followed to the top. © ROCKFAX
