26m. A very good route, and the best-protected extreme on Rob's Slab: bottom end of the grade (arguably only E2). Start on top of the blocks which have fallen away from Rob's Slab. Climb leftwards into the corner and move up to good but hidden holds on the left. Move up leftwards and gain a good hold in the crack on the slab proper. Make a hard move up right to get established on the slab, then follow the crack to the top.

A bit damp and dirty at the start but fine once on the slab, found it quite hard and its the first time my arms have been pumped at Fairy cave!

Felt harder and more committing than last time, perhaps because it was slightly greasy today. On reflection, and all things considered, probably just E3.

scary - I was very glad I wasn't leading this one
hms - 2nd O/S - 22/Oct/10 with Brian

A couple of hard moves, just about 5c, and the protection is more reassuring than on some of the routes hereabouts. Therefore no more than E2.
