Rockfax Description
The central line of the slab is an excellent climb that has just about adequate protection as long as care is taken to seek it out. Start in the centre of the slab below rusty twin pegs at mid-height.
Follow a thin crack on good holds, slightly rightwards, to the twin pegs. Step right and climb the sustained upper wall on shallow dishes and thin seams to the top. © Rockfax

Gear was fiddly after the first part, luckily there were some good positive holds along the way. Top section was well balanced. Nice climb overall

Thin gear (best at the top :) ) but an enjoyable route once the pockets are reached.

Really tough and run out. Unless we got the line wrong this is way harder than HVS.

The peg is now missing, I stepped right and clipped the pegs on "Walking on the Moon".

This is an E1

No peg. Headed towards rusty stain (from peg remnants), placed some reasonable wires, then ran it out to a good hold. Take some micros - a really good route.

Pegs have snapped off. TR to speed up, the tide was coming in!

Bold with poor gear (secound peg is ready to go). E1 due to boldness.

E1 5a. Single rotten peg, some very small gear to back it up.

Very clear and direct line up crips - great friction. E1 5b?? Nah.

very nice climbing - quite tricky above the peg with dubious spaced gear - would probably give this E1 5a
