[Me on Bloodhound (E2 5c), 3 kb]37m. Excellent slab climbing, bold in places. Start in the centre of the slab at the top of the gully underneath Kennel Wall and the imposing hanging slab of One Step Beyond. Climb the slab, rightwards at first and then cut back left across the blank wall to the obvious flake. Ascend straight up for a few metres then move right to the obvious groove in the overhang. Climb the groove to finish.

Intense! Very bold and definitely E2 but probably 5b, as in the most recent FRCC guide, rather than 5c.

Defo 5b not 5c and defo E2 due to the runout to the flake which was a little exciting. The top half is better than the bottom half which felt a bit wandering, the top has lovely technical moves with spaced gear to keep you interested all the way to the top. 3*
Chad123 - AltLd O/S - 10/Mar/12 with Sophie B

Fun route to second. Wouldn't have fancied leading this due to bold nature of route and quirky gear placements.

Good and bold. Above the gear in several places. Would be a horrible fall if you fluffed it reaching the flake.

Backed off, too bold for me. Seems the the peg has disappeared also. Whether this increases the boldness much is debatable if the correct line is taken?
