Climb the right hand side of the slab to the left of the corner (Lion), starting from the bottom of the easy, diagonal descent. The top part is very bold without microwires. Top out could benefit from a little pruning.

Really fun. Yeah the tops a bit run out but the holds are good, and the climbings easy. Also theres a number 2 (ish?) cam in a vertical slot to the left.

No gear at the top. Good jugs out to the right - if I had fallen it could have been messy! Good climb in the fading light.

Quite sandy in places, enjoyable slab but quite committing. Slipped a couple once but don't think weighted rope. Iain lead.

The top section is in no way `bold'; I found a no. 1 nut placement halfway up the upper slab and a decent cam just below the top. There is the odd loose block here and there.
