Rockfax Description
The central line of the slab is an excellent climb that has just about adequate protection as long as care is taken to seek it out. Start in the centre of the slab below rusty twin pegs at mid-height.
Follow a thin crack on good holds, slightly rightwards, to the twin pegs. Step right and climb the sustained upper wall on shallow dishes and thin seams to the top. © Rockfax

cdpuk 12 Aug, 2018 Lead O/S No pegs left. Lots of micro wires if you seek them out but still felt like solid E1 5b.

Rob Davies 8 May, 2017 Lead dog Thought I was trying Crazy Streak, but I think we did this one. 2 pegs are no longer there - only tiny wires instead, so it's very necky as next gear I found was near the top. At one point a lunge for the ab rope saved my bacon! E1 5a without the pegs?

Motown 31 Jul, 2013 Lead O/S No peg. Headed towards rusty stain (from peg remnants), placed some reasonable wires, then ran it out to a good hold. Take some micros - a really good route.
