20m. New route on the extreme left of the area behind the ventilation tower. 6 Bolts to lower off. Reachy!

Bit of a reach low down, but pretty straightforward otherwise. Doesn't seem your typical slate climb, but then this was my first day on slate.

A difficult start for shorties is made fractionally easier by taking the route up to the left on smaller holds and slab than trying to reach the high jug on the right.

Even the "reachy crux" of the guidebook doesn't seem that interesting. Lots of steps to a lower off that runs over sharp rock. Don't agree with stars. Lower off is dodgy; try and use a quickdraw to keep you close to your rope.

Enjoyable climb. A bit different to most slate I've climbed because of its big slopey holds. Made for a nice change of pace.
