Groove & Slab E1 5b
[Lower section of Groove & Slab - E1 5b, Cocytus area, Anstey's Cove, 4 kb]Sounder than it looks, well protected and a worthy companion to Acheron. The twin pegs (one new 2014) can be backed up with cams. Climb past them to gain the groove and follow this to a spike runner. Hand traverse R to another spike runner on the arete. Climb the slab to gain a slanting crack which has a hard move at its end. Bear R to a bolt belay and lower off

Varied and satisfying route - steep first groove is easier and better protected than it looks and there is plenty of gear before committing to the crux on the upper slab.
