The Waved Slab* M
[Waved Slab, 2 kb]The fossilised remains of a shallow sea bed lifted up and tilted at an angle.
The slab behind the start of Left edge is climbed by a series of rounded mantelshelves.
Very little protection and belays can be hard to find. Friction is fantastic.

Barefoot - forget acupressure mat and go try those rough and blood stimulating waves - so healthy!

The friction was excellent, provided you avoided stepping on the wet mossy bits, but it paid to look ahead to avoid getting trapped on a bad surface, and the start and finish are horribly vegetated. After rain, in a gusty breeze, soloing in big boots, and all alone on that vast expanse, it didn't feel at all "moderate" to me.

Easy enough to be fun, high enough to be worth doing.
