Climb the slab direct from the base of the obvious left-curving crack, and finish via the open grove that turns the bulges to its right.

Started at the curving crack of Black Moss Route and aimed for the short vertical crack to the right of the pronounced horizontal crack (2/3rd height), via the small ledge at 1/3rd height, trying to stay in the middle of the slab. At the top, I must have trended right and ended up going through the middle bulges just left of Thunder Slab. From the large grass ledge I took the easiest route, having run completely out of runners! A great, delicate route up terrific rock, with enough gear (though fiddly at times). It was certainly absorbing, and didn't feel easy for the grade, as someone has commented below - but, neither was it a sandbag. A lovely bright day with good views from the top made it particularly enjoyable.
