HVS in the guidebook sounds about right. Felt a bit easier than short slab.

nothing harder than 5a here and actually felt easier than Short Slab. Not sure how this ever gets E1, but it is a superb route anyway.

Harder and less protected than Three Pebble Slab. Undergraded in the definitive guidebook (2010) as HVS.

Pull over the overlap was fairly easy but the tricky move on the slab spooked me a bit, i was expecting the overlap to be the crux. Alright once i got on with it.
Dan Lane - Lead O/S - 29/Feb/12 with Ruth Taylor

The climb 3PS wishes it was! Cracking moves. It even has it's own little grade debate! (E1 5a by the way). Fantastic stuff.

bigdrew - 2nd O/S - 16/Oct/11 with Mark R

nice but not so sure about the hvs 5b grade. maybe just about a 5a move low down but then a steady slab above. i think VS 5a might be more appropriate?

knicos - Lead O/S - 03/Sep/11 with Paul Salmon

E1 for the runout (especialy when the only cam that fits in the top break is sitting on the second) but fairly staight forward climbing. very engoyable.
Paul1 - Lead O/S - 03/Sep/11 with Nick

Ran to grab my shoes and was glad I did. Hard but fun. Had to rest due to tiredness and the fact the cams were so wedged it was a real struggle to get them out! Def E1 for potentially dangerous runout. Slab doesn't really have holds, all about trust...!

Been a while since I've done a grit slab but this was perfectly amenable. HVS 5a (Ant said there was decent gear in a break towards the top). Done on the Saturday morning of Ian's 50th birthday weekend. After soloing Short Slab and a couple of boulder problems to the left, a heavy shower forced us all off the crag. Went on to climb at Stoney in the afternoon.

4c with good gear to get established on the slab. Slab is runout with a 5a move low down. A decent cam placement near the top. Overall - HVS.

good route worth seeking out, very soft if its E1. E1 5a is a better reflection of the difficulties and protection of the upper part.
Graeme Hammond - 2nd O/S - 28/Jun/10 with Rob

liked a lot on 2nd and felt soft enough to solo so i did. probably better than 3TPS and without the hype

Huge fall from 6 inches shy of the top. Next time it says 'unprotected slab' in the guidebook I'll believe them.
