Nanoq Slab E1 5b

Rockfax Description
The narrow slab to the right of the wide crack of Grey Slab. A grade harder if you avoid the arete completely - though artificial. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
The slab to the right of Grey Slab. Pure smearing. A great, if head-testing, solo: delicate at the top.

one move, quite a fun move though
pete1993 - Lead O/S - 01/Nov/14 with Katie

pretty crap route, no independence and escapable.
JamieSparkes - Lead O/S - 01/Nov/14 with Clement Hutin, Claire Holland

Nice move and pretty safe really. Got a huge cam in the crack and a couple of hexes at the bottom of the crux slab so the fall wouldn't be too bad. Nothing too tricky and very pleasant indeed.

Quite a nice climb, got to stay away from the aretes though or this becomes way to easy, a bit like Squeezy slab at the Roaches.

Used the arete, seemed too easy that way. I'll have to give it a bash without next time.

Definitely not E3 as in Rockfax. Or 5c either.
amccann - Lead - 24/Nov/13

In the damp. Easy E2 5b seems fair?

Used the R arete: not 5b like this (so I presume I should not have. Very artificial not to.
harold walmsley - 2nd O/S - 08/May/12 with Colin Struthers

Hidden - Solo O/S - 27/Feb/12

E2 seems more appropriate (as in definitive guide) providing the arete is not used.

Done solitarily at the crag. Had a moment of panic at the crux - but told myself just to calm down and climb with my feet. Which probably saved a nasty and complicated fall, but set me up for another later that week.
