The narrow groove in the R. arete of the Golden Slipper slab. More physical than GS but with bomber gear where it is most needed.

Roberttaylor 10/Oct Lead

Do the first pitch of Golden Slipper into this, it really isn't worth the misery.

Slyven 10/Oct AltLd O/S

Lead P1 and P3. P1 is so dirty and no wonder people opt for P1 of 'Golden Slipper instead. Had a bit of hold blindness on the P2 but great climb for first one back after a year off. Would like to return to lead P2.

Martin Haworth 26/Sep AltLd O/S

Nice route. Followed by a nice refreshing swim across the tarn.

Did P1 only - stay well away - F**king awful! loose, dirty and slimy accessing the belay. the corner has vanished into the undergrowth, I climbed the slab out right but recommend doing golden slipper P1! article here:

Gudge 18/Jun/13 AltLd O/S

P2. Couldn't find the start so did first pitch of Golden Slipper instead! Great route - especially second pitch.

with Lewis Gray
Lessworkmoreclimbing 08/Jun/13 AltLd O/S

Tried proper first pitch. Dry black lichen coats the whole pitch, holds included. Practised my down climbing! Did first pitch of Golden Slipper instead. Kev led main pitch, it was nice and I would have led it if I wasn't so tired.

Hol - pitches 1 and 3. Me - pitch 2. Started with the first pitch of Golden Slipper - far more appealing (and obvious) than the first pitch as described for Poker Face. A really tremendous route.

Fine route, good gear. P2

Led P2, which was pretty stiff, it probably didn't help that I continued up the groove rather than break left onto Glass Slipper. Still, great route, with amazing positions!

with Tom Greenwood
cbeard 20/Apr/12 AltLd O/S

The first pitch is, as Stephen Reid and Steve Ashton's excellent 1989 guidebook indicates, 'repulsive'. Definitely a bit harder than Arcturus.

Blammo! Sustained and gets progressively more thuggy and technical then sets you free onto the face just below the top. Get your game face on.

Mark lead 1st pitch, and i struggled with the 2nd. gained the last jug in the top of the steep groove before the step left but had no suitable wires left to place and could not hold on any longer as it took half a dozen goes to get this far. fell off again so lowered off.
