Rockfax Description
From the tip of the slab, make a hard friction move to start and then just go. Unprotected but a belayer on the left is sensible! © Rockfax

Good bold climbing from the word go with the drop off to the right. No gear so may as well have been a solo. Tied belayer on with 2nd rope up and left but no runners.

Called for a mat regretably, as I was fine with the solo in the end. Sketchy though
