Get in! This felt strangely easy today, did it statically without the old 'french hop'!

Tricky. Left palm down found the way. Did it off pad, much harder off the floor. Try this off floor next time.

I have no exact dates for this or any other routes at Slipstones, only ticks in the guidebook. However I visited several times in the 1980s and late 1990s. I do however, remember Micro Corner being one of the bestI've done there.
