Off to the Hebrides for a week and a bit and hoping to get plenty of climbing in. Just wondering if anyone had and good recommendations for slab routes/ slabby cliffs in the vs-e2 range. I should add we’re probably just going to be on Harris and Lewis 

Ideally footworky stuff as I’m struggling a little with an elbow injury at present.

thanks in advance

Not many I can think of... gneiss tends to be steep, if it’s not it’s really easy! Plenty of vert though...

Some of the walls in and around Painted Geo might fit the bill.

Some stuff around North Atlantic Wall, north of screaming geo and a few routes here and there but no major slabby seacliff venue that I can think of.  Though if you're happy to look at multipitch then the slabs on Griomaval in Glean Teasdal are superb slabs S-E1 terrain @ c.300m long.  North facing unfortunately, but I really enjoyed the climbing.

Cheers,

Stu

Very much at the lower end of your range (gets VS in the latest guide but used to be Severe)

Islivig Direct (S 4a)

One of the best routes I've ever done.

There are some other harder routes on the same hill, Comes the Breanish (HVS 5a) looked pretty good.
