This route was totally altered by a rockfall in the early 1970's. Reclimbed in 2000 after rockfall. Starts at the same place as Slabs West but then traverses right and climbs the easier angled slabs to the right of that route

The top pitch has lost a reasonable sized chunk of rock. Still climbable - but a bit harder than VD

I thought that the spike belay on big ledge at end of p1 is rather poor. The guidebook mentions a possible belay on a lower ledge. As there is no protection for the first few metres of P2, if you aren't 100% confident at the grade I'd use the lower belay, or if not happy with it, place a runner there and continue to belay at end of pitch 2.
