Rockfax Description
14m. Climb the well-travelled slab (tricky to start) to a ledge then tackle the slab on the left of the chimney on slopers to a final crack. © Rockfax

Didn't think the start was that tricky, but then realised having started halfway up, we didn't climb it.

Seconded the climb behind John, then (finding my slab climbing wanting), skipped the slopey, bouldery and slightly hard-to-protect first half, and lead the second half. Found this challenging for my climbing style, but I was learning to lead on it! The section just below the top required some confidence as it was slightly exposed (for a beginner).

Lovely little arete to start, even if easy. The upper crack not hard, but guide illustration suggested a left and up at top. Went to far round the corner initially onto the slab. Nice.

Fun to onsight, climbing in the first snowfall of the year. Conditions were topping out onto compacted snow. Hot aches, no feelings in limbs. Didn't even register my body on the slab as had no sensation left.

I've got this down as a HVDiff with no technical grade in my guide book (On Peak Rock). It is quite easy if you stick to the line described in the book, if you venture to the left you get on to Condor Slab which is definitely more technical (4b in the book).
