Rockfax Description
The thinner line of cracks on the right-hand side of the slab is the equal of its better known neighbour. Start 5m right of the start of Sacre Coeur at a thin crack.
Take the crack to a small overlap. Move up and follow thin technical cracks with difficulty to a better crack. Continue up this crack and finish up another to gain the summit of the rock. © Rockfax

was worried i'd broken my toe the day before so was surprised to be able to get my shoes on at all, let alone get up this!

Wimped out before the first overlap twice and downclimbed. Eventually committed and trusting screaming toes, instinct took over with gear placement and body position, I somehow made it to the top. Absolutely no idea how, I felt off on every move!! Need to climb more slabs! Also, this is a phenomenal route.

Great route, technical.

Foot slipped and I fell. Very sustained and hard! Loads of gear. Must return to lead it clean.

Superb climbing. The pegs at the top could do with being replaced. Thanks to the kind person who donate the gear for the abseil.

Good hard route. Don't have to step right at the top, can continue into final crack.

Felt easy for the grade, but it was chalked. The crux could be confusing if the key hold wasn't plastered in the white stuff!
