UKC

An excellent slab climb up a delightful and subtle line. The climbing is continuously good but the route can get sand washed down from above and may need a brush. Worth 3 stars if perfectly clean. Climb the lower groove to tricky moves right to a good rest, then the thin flake above past another crux to a useful lower-off. Take small nuts and large cams!

(Was temporarily retro-bolted and ascents between May and August 2013 refer to that state.)

βeta: Block higher up that has potential RP / microcam placements and a hold on the top is loose and might come out if pulled on too hard / fallen on, take care
