14m. Start up Sinister Rib but shuffle right then pad up the bald, bold slab. A bit blinkered but very engrossing. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Climb the slab direct from the 1/3 height break, mid way between Sinister Rib and Doris. Good quality smearing.

Top-rope practice on the way back from Gordale. Went very easily indeed. It's really only 4 hard moves from the break before you're in a good position and able to make the final couple of moves to the handhold. The poor quality of the gear if you did slip is the questionable factor.

Soooo much harder than Sinister Rib. I reckon it's worth E4 for the very real deck prospect. If you slip from the hard slabby moves, your gear will almost certainly rip and if that happens you will hit the floor from a long way up.

sketchy smearing! Scared everyone when my foot slipped a bit - intakes of breath - but E3 ticked. Job's a goodun. Can't remember the date. Matt was very happy when he led it!

More scary on the lead than Sinister Rib. Do it with two ropes and put some gear on one rope at the bottom of Sinister Rib and some more gear on the other rope at the bottom of Doris. It won't help you much, but you'll probably feel a bit better about making the moves. hehe

Will lead it next time I'm there. Much harder than Sinister Rib, maybe easy 6a.

Felt easy, but then again I didn't fall off. Go figure....
