Rockfax Description
The centre of the steep slab is a Curbar testpiece, being both technical and bold. Climb directly to the runner slot on One Step Beyond then continue up the sustained thin crack above. A microwire is useful in the crack but it is hard to place. © Rockfax

βeta: The low runner slot as above is getting worn, when a friend of mine did the route there was actually a sall flake of rock stuck in the slot. You can also protect the lower section before the slot with some poor sky hooks.

βeta: The low runner slot is getting quite badly worn - worth checking out. Also it might be possible to get one of the new small zero friends in the finishing crack where a rock'n roller? went.

James Smith 17 Sep TR dnf Shut down on the high foot crux near the top today - wasn't quite trying it right though so keen to go back. Felt fairly steady up to there considering the warmth of the day.

James Smith 20 Oct, 2018 TR dog Quick play whilst the others did Avalanche Wall, tricky but do-able. Kind of safe(ish) with a bunch of pads?? Cool techy climbing on actually quite good holds, keen for another play but not sure if I'll lead.

Jon Read 15 Aug, 1999 Lead RP One mat, 2 RPs; Dunc's mat, first one I'd ever used -- it tipped the balance. Dislocated shoulder on the last hard move on lead, and just managed to do a one-arm mantle to finish. It's weird that you can tear yourself apart... Duncan kindly drove me to his doctor friend in Sheffield for some brilliant painkillers, and I sailed back to Leicester in a daze. A big day out for me!
