Rockfax Description
16m. The centre of the poorly-protected (medium Friends) slab has delicate and unprotected moves at 10m (harder for the short) before it eases off. Traverse right to a stance on the crest of the buttress and walk off, or finish as for the next route. © Rockfax

I really enjoyed this route, but for some reason I seem to like unprotected slabs. Be under no illusions, groundfall is certain if you fall from the Cruz. The small traverse across was the most exciting bit, I was tempted to keep going up as thats whete the hand holds went but the feet are there if you look for them and once you've made the first couple of steps right you are back to more convincing holds. Did the continuation finish too.

After the cam in the break it's basically a solo. I fannied about putting a crap small cam and a small nut in on the right which I suppose gives you a bit of time to summon up the courage and figure out the way. Bobby whizzed straight up it which showed a complete lack of diplomacy for a meet leader!

Awesome route, started going up the sloth, but too many people waiting on the stance so traversed up and right tot he top of right route. Amazing route!

Could not find any protection through the centre ... a micro wire gave me some bravery and while the climbing was relatively easy it felt rather bold until I could trend right and relax again.
