Black Widow E1 5b
35m. Harder than it looks, strenuous. Good though...
This route climbs the leftward side of the slab, to the overhang; and then crosses this, via the hanging crack.
1) 5b. Boldly climb the polished left edge of the slab, to a recess. (It is also possible to climb the wall on the left, via large flakes, to gain the top of the slab.) Move out right, to gain the crack. Hard moves lead to a struggle to pull onto the slab above. Masochists will attempt to finger jam the crack.
2) 5a. Climb the crack above, until it is possible to join Spiderís Web. Note: The rock on this second pitch is now unstable. Safer to continue as for one of the adjoining routes, such as Spiderís Web
