Rockfax Description
12m. The left-hand side of the slab is precarious and balancy. The shallow upper groove is steep and awkward - crimp or layback. © Rockfax

I was shaking so much from fear that I fell off the slab about 3/4 of the way up! Slide wasn't bad at all and I just grazed my hand, so got back on and lead it all fine. Top section is hard, but the gear is very reassuring!

Good lead by Chris. the slab is rather delicate. The top seemed okay but I suspect it might be a different story on the sharp end of the rope.

Slab has one quite awkward rock over that gives it the 5a the slab is unprotected so you needs to know how to slab climb.
