Savage Slit*** S
[Savage Slit, 2 kb]80m, 4 pitches. This is a classic climb. Once at the bottom of the climb there is an old piton about 3metres up in the rock to the left, either use this or solo up to the first real belay point 10m above. easy placements here and a good view of practically the whole climb. The crack/chimney above this is narrow but deep often going back 4m or more. There are good ledges and foot placements for most of the climb and an abundance of welded gear remains in the wall. Guides mostly split the rest of the climb into 3 pitches but the next 2 pitches are easily combined as one. All the belay points are perfect with wide ledges or chock stones in the crack. The last belay has two ledges 3 metres apart, since the crack veers of here this is a possible abseil point back to the bottom of the y gully

Dripping wet with light rain throughout, but at least it was sheltered from the strong SW winds. A superb route despite the conditions. In 3 pitches, Carmen joined guidebook pitches 1+2, and led the final exit pitch. Next time we'll ab after the main pitches, or at least carry boots up, as the walk off was hideous. Soft for the grade even in the wet, if dry would probably be VDiff south of the border.

Very good climb. Well worth its stars. Done it in two pitches then ab'd off the tat, Calum lead P1 and I lead P2. Andy and simon claimbed it at the same time as us so was good craic! A few bits of insitu gear! Good ab. 3grade 1 winter pitches to get into route which were also good fun. All in all a good day out before the rain came on.
