45m. The delightfully smooth face up faint tramlines and a diagonal seam. Line indicated & ruined by 3 bolts, worth ignoring as it's E2 5b (decent RPs) even without them. Finish up the endless and pleasant slab past more bolts next to good gear cracks.

Tried the 6b+ version, but backed off at bolt #2, deciding I needed stiffer shoes!

Now F6b. We decided it's more scary on a top rope than lead, as you hit the ground on rope stretch (tested once when I misread the sequence)

Fantastic slab climbing. Hard bit is first 3 bolts up to a ledge then 4c/5a ish climbing to finish. The limestone in the lower slab is almost like slate - very smooth. Climbed as sport - 6b+ in the Malta guidebook.

Now F6b+ with the bolts - but the first one is a long way up!

Long way to first bolt and hard moves getting to it - would recommend pre clipping the first bolt unless comfortable at the grade. An excellent but slightly spicy 6b+ that gets easier the higher you go. Lowered off half way up to save walking off (all the good climbing is at the start).

I'll throw it out there, quite possibly one of the best pieces of natural slab climbing in... the... world...?? A unique geological structure, although limestone, the face is almost marble/porcelain like and the first 12(ish) meters is where all the action is, but it is packed. It gets hard immediately after stepping off the ground and is gripping until you get to the first proper hold, about 12(ish) meters up. Yes, no longer trad, but still a little gem. Fair dues if you've done it the Trad way, reckon you may as well have solo'ed it... One of my all-time fav's.

Originally a challenging route due to the very poor protection (small wires) in the crux first section, this route has been marred by the placement of three (yes three!) bolts providing bombproof security. First bolt is hard to clip though but a small wire can be placed in the base of the crack to protect the hard move up the first bolt.

Unfortunately the trad grade is no longer valid as it's been bolted. Even if you don't clip the bolts, can you really award yourself the trad grade? I don't think so
