86m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
This delightful route takes the best line of clean rock. The climbing is relatively easy for the grade but it is thin on gear in places.
1) 35m. Climb direct up the seam 2m left of the right-facing corner of the Underlap.
2) 40m. Continue in the same line as the angle gradually eases towards the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A fine climb direct up the centre of the Red Slab. The climbing is mostly straightforward with few hard moves but the protections is sparse. Start roughly in the centre of the slab, just left of the right-facing overlap. Follow the straight thin seam direct in two pitches to the top.

Lovely easy slab climbing and much better gear - i got at least 8 bits in 45m, The belay stance is not that great, but a lovely route with easy approach and easy descent from top. Gets morning sun

Pete Nugent 11 Jun, 2011 Lead O/S Very heavy downpour with hailstone early morning. Clearly the weather continues to be unsettled, the others opted for Tremadog but I wanted to avoid a 4th day at this crag! The forecast was to improve so after some shopping at Joe Brown we drove round the to Idwal Cottage. The weather was improving and we walked down the old road and up to the crag which was in the midday sun and bone dry. (we were subsequently told that the Idwal Slabs were wet). The route has reasonable protection: at least 6 pro points/pitch. We climed with our sacks and then carried on to the top of CyF and on over the top of Y Garn - fabulous views. We descended the Devils Kitchen path to Lyn Idwal. It was now about 7 pm so we decided not to complete our "Alpine Day" with an ascent on the Slabs - instead we opted for an excellent curry at Llanberis Spice. A brilliant mountain day out and good alpine training.
