Red's Slab HS 4b
11m. Climb the awkward lower arete then move right and balance up the centre of the face. A sling on the stump up and left is the only possible runner, lowering the grade and grip factor. © ROCKFAX

1st climbs after over a month off. Struggled with height and freaking out. Was knackered after 4 climbs.

would be nice if clean, but in it's current state, half an inch of lichen, it isnt.

Tithe Technique - TR O/S - 31/May/10 with Geoff Burrows, Angela Paul, Charley Fell

Charley's lead...nice route but could do with a good brush to get rid of the lichen. Couple of nice balancy moves and s*d all gear!
valentinesbabe - 2nd O/S - 31/May/10 with Charley Fell, Geoff Burrows, Kevin Tithe

This would be a great route if it was cleaned up. In it's current state it feels like a really bold & scary lead. I did the RockFax version which shows it traversing right then going up the centre of the slab however after looking in my BMC book, it shows it carrying on up the arete which would be a lot easier...

Backed off the VS version - utterly desperate for the grade. I assume this means the left hand arete of the slab, in which this is also utterly desperate for the grade (of vdiff). There is no gear on either of them while on the slab.
