Slightly more of an undertaking than its neighbour and equally memorable. The original first pitch is often dirty so the start of Golden Slipper is described here. Start at a right-leading ramp.1) 4c, 15m. Follow the ramp to an overhang and pass it on the right to gain a ledge. Take the steep wall above to a large ledge and belay - as for Golden Slipper.2) 5b, 22m. Head rightwards up slabby ground and enter a tight corner/groove on the edge of the pillar. Climb the corner/groove until a short traverse left gains the end of Golden Slipper's second pitch.3) 4c, 18m. Climb the right arete past a tricky section low down. © Rockfax
UKC Logbook Description
The narrow groove in the R. arete of the Golden Slipper slab. More physical than GS but with bomber gear where it is most needed.
