Two pitches: 4c, 5a.
A good way up the gorge. After a classically but technically straight forward first pitch, the route takes the large overhangs direct, leading to a thin unprotected slab above. Make delicate moves taking care not to fall, to the top.

Current guidebook says there's a peg at the roof, but I couldn't see any sign of it. Took the roof to the right of centre, which seems about right for HVS. Fully direct seems pretty nails at that grade Wise to read the route description carefully ;-)

Lead first pitch clean, came down because of rain, light various other excuses. Should of done it. Some good 4c climbing on the first pitch, need to go back for the second.

Second pitch only. Getting round the overhang felt much more awkward than I remembered.

First pitch is really nice at VS 4c, second pitch is a well-protected one move wonder at 5a, so quite soft at HVS. And there's no runout above the roof, at least not for Avon standards - easy climbing and bomber big hex just 3 meters above.

Me - P1 Peter - P2 Moves through the roof felt hard but very nice. It's all over after you get the "distant holds" though really.

First pitch only, as Jana was somewhat intimitated by the sight of the overhang on the second pitch, so finished up last pitch of Piton Route instead. First pitch of Central Slab is really good VS 4c, a little bold at the start but easy enough climbing & no polish. Oh and somebody chalked up Piton Route like crazy...
