Rockfax Description
A well-travelled route, although not as popular as its right-hand neighbour. Start on the far left of the wall.
1) 4a, 10m. Climb a crack and flake to a belay by some heather.
2) 24m. Move up, then back right, to almost join Slab Route 1. Step left to a crack and follow this to a small ledge and belay.
3) 14m. Go up the groove and grassy rock above to reach a ledge. Walk off leftwards carefully from here. © Rockfax

Simon Caldwell 15 Aug, 2010 AltLd O/S Difficult route finding, the guidebook description is a bit rubbish. I led the whole route in one long pitch due to not finding the described belays! No idea where the final 'ridge on the right of the grassy scoop' is - we ended up just left of the 3rd belay of Slabs Route 1 and so C finished by leading up the last pitch of that route. Good fun though, harder than Route 1.
