The slab to the right of Slippery People, one mocking bolt shows the way. Easy climbing gains the bolt, harder climbing leaves it, until some resting holds allow a cluster of dubious gear (the "bomber" RP is very shallow). Careful climbing leads to the top. E4 in the new guide which is not correct.

I only got on this because it said E4 in the GroundUp slate guide. Bit of a dangerous misprint really! I found the route super sustained, with multiple sections as hard as the crux of Slug Club Special, and way more scary/bigger fall potential. Didn't bother taking any gear, which made the last hard section absolutely terrifying. My first E5, onsight, on the first day of the first trip of the year. Chuffed isn't the word :)

The guidebook description coupled with no obvious gear from the ground led me to ab this route and try the moves. Its actually not too bad around the bolt and i found some gear below it. E5 for an onsight.

Quite scary above bolt. Climbing never too hard but committing feeling.

cant believe it, I dropped the final move....the last bloody move! pretty big fall onto the large & bomber RP, run out to the bolt is simple on small positive edges above the bolt its sustained but easy 6a still don't believe I fell on the last move.....robbed! abbed for gear still got the g/u for next time

Slate guide gives this and 'remain in light' same grade but this felt at least a grade harder than 'remain in light' to me. Got bit scared!

Both the unprotected moves and the hardest moves are easier than the equivalent unprotected and hard moves on slug club. Whether that makes this E4 or Slug Club E5 for the onsight, I don't know.

Returned to finish the job.. Its ok when you know what to expect.. Marginal gear above bolt.

not to bad, just didn't want to fall off onto anything apart from the bolt (it might have held though)

Nice route, first e5 onsight but it didnt feel e5. Easier than slug club in my opinion

took me a while to get to the top but got there in the end! not sure any of the gear after the bolt would have held but still made it easier to commit.

Didn't see many rp placements but a few small cams. Great climbing, much better than it looks.

Bailed after going a few moves past the bolt, by down climbing then lowering
