This is also logged on UKC as "grab the slab" but i believe this (better) route name pre-dates it by 3 years. Good micro gear, felt about F6a but spookier.

Felt thinner than it should have. The gear is small, some of its good though. I've never used so many pieces from the 'special small stuff crab' before. Nice

Did this 7 years ago on first climbing trip, always wanted to go back. Does take v small gear but its only for confidence. Great moves, soft at grade, E1 5a-ish.

Poor protection at the crux (guess this it what makes it E1!). Entertaining watching the guys at the bottom get soaked by the incoming tide.
