βeta: Abseil on tree on edge of slab on the left is jank, poorly equalised on crusty tat and the tree is a bit wobblier than you'd like.

βeta: For abseil: at the back of the slab and little way off to the right (with your back to the gorge) there is a small tree with a proper abseil station. From a distance the tree looks almost too small to consider but it seems much more solid than the wobbly, taller tree in an awkward position off to the left at the edge of the slab that I know some people have been using (that one had tat and a maillon at the time of writing but doesn't look like a good option in comparison).

βeta: Awkward abseil tree at the top of the slab held up fine but for how much longer?
