A worthwhile climb taking the thin and technical slab between Fag Slab and Fag Slab Variant. Often soloed as there is not much pro low down.

For sure this is E1 - harder than Padder @ Eastby which is for me a benchmark E1. A bold & tentative slab with little pro - lovely.

Didn't think I'd get up this as the footholds are tiny pepples. Felt chuffed after a clean onsight! Albeit with a top rope!

Decked it from the top of the slab on the solo felt pretty stupid seen as my mat was sitting there unused. Screwed up foot sequence and popped.. luckily landed on both feet and walked away.. could have been nasty. hands were probably at 6m. Took the message to go home as i was tired and making mistakes.

Lovely technical slab climbing. Might have been worth leading as there's a bit of gear at the top.

first time I was feeling confident on it, but I was trying to get the pro that my mate had welded into a crack. Fell and second time got my order wrong.

Needed a bit of 'proactive spotting' from Robin to get off the ground but the thin slab above was fun....looks easy from the ground but it isn't! Would have had a photo to upload but Joe left the memory card out of his camera...doh!

Tony Worboys - Lead - 23/Jul/06 with Andysomething

Top-roped cleanly after considering soloing it. Glad I didn't - finger holds were very tenuous in places - two fingers pinching a tiny pebble or less was about the size of things! I haven't done many of these kind of routes (blank slabs), but it felt a similar kind of thing to Chalk Storm, which is rated 4 grades higher! Maybe it's the Yorkshire vs Peak District gradings thing.
