Rockfax Description
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.
