Rockfax Description
More then one pebble harder than its neighbour. Trend right up the steep lower wall via awkward ledges to runners then step left and burn rubber up the slab on barely adequate holds, avoiding the arete. A more direct start is a grade or so harder. © Rockfax

βeta: If I thought that I could jump off the slab just below the crux onto the ledge then I would probably join the circus. The route doesn't have much continuity but it's definitely worthwhile for the moves on the short slab. I loved it.

βeta: Thought this route was really rather nice, delightful little top slab...get to it how you want. Gear in the break was good enough (nuts?). E35c about right I think, provided you don't grab the arete/crack - and if you do, it's a lovely little VS. Big deal :)

βeta: Moves to halfway ledge were fun, the three cams I put in probably wouldn't have held a spaniel. Crux slab was delicate and very rewarding, whoever says it's a crap elimintate is a miserable git and the guy who said 'barely 5a' is too full of himself. Only downside is the huge ledge you can stand on which ruins the route's continuity, but still a great route.

βeta: Hard and precarious, and eliminate. Didn'f fancy the move on lead so i grabbed the arete of the grey slab crack. That's an eliminate surely? makes a pleasent VS change from thrutching up Grey Slab though. The lower bit is quite poor too.

βeta: There's no crack or arete on the E3 and jumping to the ledge from the crux would take some doing. It goes up on smears and small pockets. Nice balancy moves I thought.

βeta: Birkby, it sounds like you did nanoq slab, to the right of the wide crack, that is E1 5b, or about HS with the right arete, Nanoq slab isn't in the rockfax

βeta: Did Three Pebble so thought I'd try Four Pebble!! Fell off one metre from top! Slid the slab, gear ripped & I decked it! Overnighter in hospital, but okay now (ish)See UKC Forums, Bad fall at Froggatt! I'll have another go in a few months!
