[Matt earning the HVS tick on Erasor Slab (HVS 5b), Earl Crag, Yorkshire, 2 kb]Climb the slab to the break, fidget left then stretch for the ledge. Walk off or, much better, do Fishladder. © ROCKFAX
Start up the right-hand side of the slab. Up to the break, then traverse 3 metres left to below the obvious ledge. A LONG reach or a technical move gains a good hold and the ledge. http://www.yorkshiregrit.com/photo.html?id=earl__erasor_slab&n=0

Jam's lead, he missed the obvious side pull that makes the top move a lot easier...
