150m.

Rockfax Description
This beautiful rippled slab can be climbed almost anywhere with the rock forming something of a giant sloping staircase. The rock is very compact and there are few runners or belays. This means you may have long pitches and run-outs with no gear, making the route a lot more frightening than the actual climbing difficulty might warrant. It should therefore only be tackled by highly experienced climbers.
Getting to the start - As for the Atlantic Slab but zig-zag up the slope directly below the Left Edge. Continue up the gully to below the main slab. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The fossilised remains of a shallow sea bed lifted up and tilted at an angle.
The slab behind the start of Left edge is climbed by a series of rounded mantelshelves.
Very little protection and belays can be hard to find. Friction is fantastic.

H. Porter May/1921.
