Rockfax Description
The narrow slab to the right of the wide crack of Grey Slab. A grade harder if you avoid the arete completely - though artificial. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The slab to the right of Grey Slab. Pure smearing. A great, if head-testing, solo: delicate at the top.

E3 in the the old Rockfax, E2 in the BMC guide and E1 in the new Rockfax. Felt like HVS!

Nice move and pretty safe really. Got a huge cam in the crack and a couple of hexes at the bottom of the crux slab so the fall wouldn't be too bad. Nothing too tricky and very pleasant indeed.

Quite a nice climb, got to stay away from the aretes though or this becomes way to easy, a bit like Squeezy slab at the Roaches.

Used the arete, seemed too easy that way. I'll have to give it a bash without next time.

Definitely not E3 as in Rockfax. Or 5c either.

In the damp. Easy E2 5b seems fair?

Used the R arete: not 5b like this (so I presume I should not have. Very artificial not to.

E2 seems more appropriate (as in definitive guide) providing the arete is not used.

Done solitarily at the crag. Had a moment of panic at the crux - but told myself just to calm down and climb with my feet. Which probably saved a nasty and complicated fall, but set me up for another later that week.
