Rockfax Description
10m. An excellent direct line up the centre of the slab. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Start in centre of the slab (many variations!) and go straight up via a scoop, passing good cams at the break, to the headwall and wires. Traverse right (ROCKFAX line is incorrect) past the mini gully onto a easy slab.

SGD 5 Aug, 2017 Lead O/S Very nice. Tried to go direct up the final wall as per the guide book until another team told us the guide but was incorrect so I finished up the wide crack with style. A good route but it's never seen a 5a move in its life, again reasonably bold but at least the gear is good.

victim of mathematics 1 Aug, 2008 TR O/S Top-roped as neither of us could face any more slabs and the top wall looked nails (and unprotected). In fact the slab itself would make a great VS 4b if you finished up the wide crack to the left. I have no idea how the top wall is meant to go at either VS or 5a. Perhaps all the holds and gear have fallen off it?!
