Rockfax Description
The scoop and overlap around to the right climbed centrally. This one is cleaner than you might expect. An eliminate variation goes through the bulge on the right at HVS 5b. © Rockfax

Looked easier than it prooved to be, thought looked Severe or less, but prooved to be a commiting move onto first mantel (had hoped for better hold!)

My partner tried to do this route following the Rockfax line but you obviously can't go through the centre at severe. From her gear (So not VS4a!) I led following BM&B description "Climb the centre of the slab, avoiding the overhang on the left (direct is HVS)" . That felt fine for severe although I went quite far left. In the rockfax/ ukc description of this slab the S, VS and HVS versions are indistinguishable.

Originally lead this the crux felt too bold for me. So went onto top rope and completed with ease good climb, should of lead it too the end though, was just a case of man the F**K up!!

Climbed myself into trouble a bit when just having a play but managed to finish comfortably in the end after an awkward moment when I committed to moving up thinking I'd reach a nice hold, didn't and then up seemed less risky than trying to reverse it. Like all slabs, probably piss easy on second and you'd wonder why the leader hesitated...
