Rockfax Description
Climb awkwardly onto the slab and trend left, passing the metal boomerang to a stance on the arete. Step back right and follow the thin crack just right of the arete and the pleasant groove directly above. © Rockfax

Totally unprotected at the start up to the metal tack, a fall from here would be unpleasant hence the new guide giving this HVS 4c. The initial off the ground move was the most bizarre move I've ever completed on rock. Had this move been higher up it would probably get E2.

Not very nice bottom, really nice top section on positive crimps in great position.

Did this is as warm up, bad move! Really nice moves at the top and a great mantle onto the slab at the beginning. Top end VS, maybe even HVS

Staring moves (also on Great Slab) are much harder than 4b
