Rockfax Description
14m. The centre of the slab is climbed passing a hole to a ledge then a finish up the face above and slightly right. Good climbing that is poorly-protected. A Friend 3.5 is useful near the top. © Rockfax

βeta: I thought the top was solid 4c (but with ok gear just below your feet) and lower down 4b ish. The whole route is in fact protectable though (without a single cam!) if you look carefully. Middling VS.

βeta: RP 4 wieghted with a large hex on a VS! If you are short and you go straight up the final "slab" to the top, with out straying to either side, its easly 4C, to me thats the crux. The route is definatly 4c and because of the poor gear it can only be VS. Ok if your are cruising Smear Test and Elergy, this might be a soft touch, but to a non-grit stone VS leader thsi route would be a real shock.

uni-chris 24 Feb TR O/S Top roped based on advice of poor protection in description and comments - should have known better, found plenty enough gear placements (I was racked for leading and placed gear as I climbed to check) and would happily lead it. As often seems to be the case, the gear is there if you know how to look for it - it helps that there is another slab below the proper bottom of the climb, meaning you can lead higher above the gear without risking a ground fall (if you have the balls to cope with the potential of long lead falls).

Good little route and more serious than it looks but commitment is a little deflated by the ledge, which allows an escape.
