Rockfax Description
Nice and varied. Step up and trend out right to pass the roof then climb the bulge leftwards by a powerful pull to access the contrasting slab above. Pad up this paying homage to Three Pebble Slab. © Rockfax

βeta: Actually I found this harder than 3 Pebble Slab. Might just have been having a bad day, but it's certainly a lot harder than either Centrepiece or Bolt buttress.

βeta: A very fine route, the VS 3 Pebble Slab of Stanage Middle Area. Committing moves through the bulge and up the slab give a satisfying experience.
