The narrow groove in the R. arete of the Golden Slipper slab. More physical than GS but with bomber gear where it is most needed.

gav 5 Jul AltLd O/S P1 of Glass Slipper (lead by Phil), then I got the main pitch. Gear is great throughout, and climbing steady until the crux. Took me 3 or 4 goes to commit, but stuck a bit of gear in mid-crux then carried on through. Cracking pitch, if a little dirty at the moment. P3 (Phil) is really poorly protected and really bloody hard.
