Rockfax Description
At the bottom of the slab is a smaller inset slab, start under this. Climb the mini-slab then pull awkwardly onto the main one. Follow the left edge of this then head for the top, avoiding moving left. Less continuous than the others here but worth doing. © Rockfax

Bit thin on placements at the start, but once over the main step it was okay :) Great route!

Fun climb - certainly tougher than Bow-Shaped slab with more demanding footwork and fewer places to stop and place gear in comfort. Move over the inset is easy but fun.

A bit rushed since the tide was coming in! Starting on the inset slab made placing protection a bit tricky. When I pulled out onto the main slab I also pulled out the previous wire with no obvious place to stick another wire in. Ended up running out about half the route without protection! Also, this is where I dropped my virgin size 10 offset, straight into the waves :(

got on this coz bow shaped slab had a team on it, but thought this was probably more interesting because of the little overlap. very nice climb

Wanted to lead it but big seas would have meant a very unpleasant experience for my second. TR'd it instead, starting above the waves.
