This magnificent ridge overlooks Waved Slab. It has harder moves than Waved Slab but better gear. The stances are small. Approach by zig-zag up the slope directly below the edge.
1) 30m. The initial right-trending diagonal rib is followed close to its crest to a small stance
2) 45m Carry on up in the same vein to a smaller belay by three blocks.
3) 30m. Continue on to an even smaller stance just before the route cuts back left.
4) 45m. Head up the slab to reach a much more sizeable ledge. Escape to the right is possible here.
5) 60m. Carry on more easily up the narrowing slab which eventually leads to the summit ridge.
Descent - Either head up and left to the summit or descend the ridge rightwards, which eventually leads back down to the drystone wall followed on the approach. © Rockfax
UKC Logbook Description
Great worthwhile slab climbing with almost grit-like friction, however protection is sparse. Be careful not to run out of rope since there aren't any defined belay stances. As the guidebook suggests, stick as close as possible to the actual left edge for the best climbing on the most solid rock.
