The polished razor-edged iron bits (above a lurking flake) lead left then back right to the top of the slab. Escape via Great Slab. The only gear is a large cam above all difficulties. Stiff boots are a great help. © Rockfax

oliver_tippett 23 Jul Solo dnf Didn’t want to top rope it, because I have a moral compass. Didn’t want to bring up a cam for the final slot, because I have balls. Didn’t finish it and had a big slide, because I’m shit.
