Rockfax Description
The huge blank-looking, steep slab above the arching overhangs is the spectacular setting for this bold and very thin climb. High in the grade. The route sees very few ascents and may need to be cleaned before an attempt. Stakes in the steep grass slope above the slab may need replacing. Start as for Creeping Flesh, just to the left of the largest arching overhang.
1) 6b, 34m. Climb Creeping Flesh for 8m and then continue in the same line to a peg above on positive shallow pockets. Move up a thin seam to a small nut-placement and make hard moves up and right to a thin crack. Take the thin crack to a final difficult sequence of moves to reach a narrow belay ledge. Peg belays.
2) 6a, 20m. Above is a peg, climb very boldly to this and continue on the same line to the top. © Rockfax

First pitch with 1 fall. Brilliant hard slab climbing. Declined 2nd pitch due to state of the belay pegs and the lichen/runout above.
