Rockfax Description
A great route and worth tracking down if the Upper Tier is busy. Abseil near the left-hand side of the crag to a tree and ledge. From the ledge, move up past broken spikes on the left to another ledge. Step left to a good foothold and follow the thin crack up the slab for a couple of metres. Step left again into a better crack and follow this to a groove that leads to the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
There is also a more direct finish at the very top:

Olympic Slab Direct Finish. HVS 5a. A variation finish that only differs from the main line by 3-4m but is worthwhile. Towards the top of Olympic Slab’s P2, instead of moving right onto a triangular ledge (and then easily up 3m to the top), move up to the juggy hollow spike then straight up the short V-groove above, using a sloper disguised as a jug.
Almost certainly done before but first recorded ascent: P. Sagar, J. Williams, 12 May 2019.
