Rockfax Description
A oddly-named route up the wide crack in the slabby angle. Awkward but large gear, big feet and determination all help. © Rockfax

βeta: I agree with dave F that the overhanging face on the left makes the slab look more slabby. I made it half way up the slab (after downclimbing to the ledge a couple of times), put one foot on the slab and went a bit mental! Put both feet back in the crag and udged up a bit further but I couldn't bring myself to let go of the chockstone. Eventually ran out of energy and slithered down for a while before shouting take and then beating up the slab a bit. And I even think I can udge! I abbed for my gear, to discover there doesn't even appear to be any gear in the upper break, so kind of glad I didn't actually get that far.

βeta: agree with taping up ankles, not a route to do wearing shorts, as my knees soon found out. bottled it on teh lead, so did my mate, so i went back and finished it second go, glad i did it's a really worthwhile route. and there's gear higher up the slab if you reach out to the pocket

βeta: after gaining the ledge handjam through the overlap, fist jam to get your feet up on the slab,jam left foot in smear high with your right and bring your left leg up in a knee jam. Take both hands off wave to the crowds and continue to the summit. if your biggest gear is a friend 4 you're highest gear will be about half height!

βeta: The wide crack swallows all large cams. Layback it if you can and jam/arm-bar/thrutch it if you can't. Don't make the mistake I did - wearing approach shoes instead of rock boots doesn't help in either jamming the crack or smearing on the slab!
