Tom Pillow 19 Jul, 2016 Lead O/S Cool sustained slab climbing, none of the gear is great but if your clever with it you can get runners most of the way up. Will found this harder than "the Beautician" E3/4 5c but I thought it was OK myself. pegs are gone! but there is gear nearby. would like to own some micro cams but it was ok without.

Jules Lane 19 Sep, 2012 2nd O/S Brilliant. ***. I enjoyed every move and was happy not to be leading. As I really can't climb 5c I think it must be more sustained 5b. Dave had no bother at all leading it and felt the gear was ok, so maybe its E2 5b/c. He even did an alternative finish up the loose chossy bulge to the right. Why ? He may call it appropriately the Altzheimers Finish. Much harder than the easy top slab shared with Armorican, but much less fun and way more scary !

Chris M Thomas 9 Sep, 2010 TR rpt Fine sunny morning. Climb protected by shunt on double rope. The slab looks blank above the initial crack but apart from a relatively short section in the middle it is well supplied with holds. I would love to lead it but sadly have not had a climbing partner there the last two visits.
