Transferring to the ramp is awkward as hell. The slab is very lichenness but not very taxing.

Plenty of gear before you kick onto the upper slab - not really any to speak of afterwards ... unless you can lassoo some of the copious vegetation! If the route saw more traffic and there was correspondingly less lichen on the upper slab then it would be worthy of at least 1 star.

Fell when transferring to the slab, phaffed too long placing too much gear. First HVS of the season and a lesson learnt!
