Rockfax Description
The original route of the slab is a good'un, which can be attempted in all weather by the competent. There are plenty of ledges for extra or alternative belays if desired. Start towards the right-hand side of the face, by a grassy pedestal.
1) 30m. Climb a wall, then head left past several ledges to belay at the base of a groove.
2) 20m. Continue diagonally leftwards to reach Sunset Ledge. Walk along this to belay below a chimney/groove.
3) 25m. Climb the chimney/groove to a slab. Continue up and belay where the angle eases.
4) 35m. Climb up leftwards to join Outside Edge Route. Follow the crest to the top. © Rockfax

Not possible to see partner when using recommended belays from the guide book. Almost got blown off the crag by military helicopter.

Bilbo 25 Jun, 2017 AltLd O/S Turned out nice again :-) Poor visibility and rain during the walk-in. Followed our noses up the first two wet and slippery pitches, unable to see the route ahead. Visibility improved after Sunset Ledge and a stiff onshore breeze broke up the low cloud, drying the last two pitches nicely. Topped out in brightening weather to enjoy the previously hidden expansive views over the sea. A great day out after an unpromising looking start.

R led 1 and 3, I led 2 and 4/5 (split last pitch due to rope drag). Pitch 3 was the highlight. Unfortunately no spectacular views until the walk off.

Bruise Apprentice 8 Aug, 2015 AltLd O/S Started up Outside Edge Route but got stuck behind a trio having an epic (leading on a single 50m rope with one person tied into the middle, and another tied into the end - the person in the middle decided she couldn't continue but because of their set-up they couldn't easily lower her off the second pitch!) so diverted onto Ordinary Route to give them plenty of breathing space. Beautiful day out and lovely walk off the ridge. Guidebook suggests the walk-off is to the right (facing in) but we found an easier and more obvious way up to the top of the ridge from the left (facing in).
