Rockfax Description
Climb the delicate thin crack near the right edge of the slab and the short-lived but gripping curving flake above which definitely looks detached! Finish up the short crack. © Rockfax

βeta: Agreed with GrahamD. The slab start is dirty with no gear which makes it quite precarious and it does disjoint the climb somewhat. I'd defo try and link the start of Great Slab and the upper section of Lorica. The flake (tech crux) is superb and deserving of 2*.

βeta: The flake section of this route is brilliant but the described approach is disjointed, slippery and dirty. For a really quality outing, take Great Slab to beneath the flake, then take the flake and the continuation crack above - a much better and more logical line.
