Rockfax Description
Climb the awkward lower arete to ledges then move right and balance up the centre of the face. Sticking with the arete is easier but just as bold. A sling on an old stump up and left (if it is still there) is the only possible runner, lowering the grade and grip factor. Both versions are usually dirty. © Rockfax

1st climbs after over a month off. Struggled with height and freaking out. Was knackered after 4 climbs.

would be nice if clean, but in it's current state, half an inch of lichen, it isnt.

This would be a great route if it was cleaned up. In it's current state it feels like a really bold & scary lead. I did the RockFax version which shows it traversing right then going up the centre of the slab however after looking in my BMC book, it shows it carrying on up the arete which would be a lot easier...

Charley's lead...nice route but could do with a good brush to get rid of the lichen. Couple of nice balancy moves and s*d all gear!

Backed off the VS version - utterly desperate for the grade. I assume this means the left hand arete of the slab, in which this is also utterly desperate for the grade (of vdiff). There is no gear on either of them while on the slab.
