Rockfax Description
The right-hand side of the slab is delicate to a finish at a perched block. Low in the grade though protection is poor on the lower crucial section - there have been a few nasty falls here. © Rockfax

βeta: Pretty standard E1 5b but that didnt't stop it from scaring me. I wasn't having a a great day, (maybe I shouldn't complain seeing as I was trying to solo everything) and thought I had to do something of note. Felt very reachy getting to the top two breaks and I really would have liked to have stuck some cams in them! Great route, great solo experience.

βeta: Felt very bold the first time I lead it but have since solo'd it with great pleasure. A great route and a good appetiser to the other routes on the slab.

βeta: Poorly proected yes, but quite short, easy crux. Low in the grade I reckon.

βeta: I wouldn't consider this low in the grade. There are several 5b moves and the gear is spaced. There are several moments when you could hit the ground if you fail. Having said that, the moves are excellent.
