The Slab Climb** VI 7
[Neil at the overlap on Slab Climb, 3 kb]90m, 4 pitches. Hopefully a helpful description: Start at the base of a chimney 20m left of the Clanger, big spike for belay. P1: 20m Traverse up right over a spike and then down, round and up to the base of the slab crack P2: 20m Climb the right hand crack up to and through the roof. Traverse left along a ledge to belay tat. P3: 20m climb the left crack/edge up to below the obvious overhanging chimney. The belay is good, but is really tight for space. P4: 30m thrutch up the chimney and continue up steep but safe ground to some rope slung around a spike. Either continue more easiy to the top, or abseil back down the route. If in a rush, P1&2 could be combined, but it's best to set up at the base of P2 for taking photos. Combining P2&3 gives a great 40m pitch but the belay stance below the chimney isn't great. Suggest belay at top of P2 and combining P3&4.

Excellent route - thoroughly enjoyed it. Great climbing and (mostly) good gear. The finish up Pinacle Ridge in the setting sun was pretty special too.

Neil got the brilliant slab pitch. Gear good but hard won.
