Climb the left side of the slab to the overhang (good nuts), reach over to good
holds and traverse left, until a step up leads to the upper slab. The overhang can also be surmounted direct, using a good hold and heel hook ~ hard 5a. Moving up right, under the overhang, to join Mambo Slab, is Severe.

Felt like a moved a little too far over onto noddy but couldn't see another way. Absailed back to the overhand and cracked the 5a mantle on roped solo.

Exciting. Took 4 attempts to nail the traverse and commit to the mantle. Footwork seemed to be the key in the end. The 'good gear' seemed to consist of 2 peanuts which I wasn't too happy about falling on to. Good once I committed though.

Failed once again; after one good look at the direct finish decided to go left but then didn't fancy the lack of gear and lack of obvious holds, so chickened out and bailed to the right. What is it about me and this (stupid) route! Seems hard for VS 4c but maybe that is because I haven't done it and because it is just one move, but there is very little protection up the lower slab (I got one nut in) and if you come off the overhang you are probably going to hit the slab below before the rope comes tight...
