Rockfax Description
The slab has thin unprotected moves to pass the overlap. It is often climbed with a side runner (E1 to HVS depending where you put it). Arguments about the grade rage on - just to clarify, it is worth E3 for an onsight ascent without a side runner. Often dirty from the top-roping/abseiling hordes' muddy boots. © Rockfax

Went for the on sight and swiftly regretted it as I stood above the gear trying to work which bit of nothing I was going to stand up on. Managed a couple of moves up but this route doesn't give in that easily so took the slide, ending up about a foot off the deck. Got it next go but only just. Scared but elated at the same time. (edit: seems to be two ways of getting up this from the photos - I stayed left of the overlap - no idea if this is easier or harder)

I had a day with a coach to try and improve my technique. Was talked into trying this on the lead. Placed side runners just above the break, so couldn't comment on what grade I thought it was. My foot kept popping off every time I tried to move past the crux (or at least I thought it was anyway - stepping up above the pinchy undercut). Came off and the coach had to run back to stop me decking, but at some point I may have another bash at it and probably hurt myself!

Really enjoyed this, despite being surrounded by 'toproping hordes' and its eliminate line. Nice moves, enjoyable insecurity, enough consequence to maintain focus. No siderunner, straight up. Hard to grade - the same moves and gear could be E3, but it is so escapable that the seriousness is massively diminished. Give it E4 and fewer people will hurt themselves I suppose.

Great slab fun! Just need good balance to get up over the overlap trusting feet. Then to move back up and right to follow send crack, i used two directional hand pull to stabalise while i moved my feet up. Good technical climbing for my outdoor grade, albeit on a top rope.

Glad I led this and resisted the temptation of that easy runner nearby. Repeated with Al Payne in similar style shortly afterwards as it is that good. Never E4, more like E2!

Did it 3 times clipping into a top-rope loop at the crux, then took the rope down and did it properly.

E1 side runner version.

SB_NWUK_99 ??/1985 -

Climbed with side-runners, so it was a lot lower than E4 for runout for me then. Climbed in about 1985. A brilliant area to climb in.

Michael Hood 17/Jun/84 Lead

With side runner so only E1.
