10m.

Rockfax Description
10m. The centre of the delicate slab on small but improved holds. The exit is very rounded and avoiding the crack to the left requires will-power especially near the top. A (sensible?) side runner in Yong lowers the grade a couple of notches. © Rockfax

βeta: Never E2, probably not even E1. One balancy move, maybe hardish 4c, with the ever-present option of bottling out into Yong. Try the R arete of the slab, that's more like 5b. No gear, but you could probably jump for the ledge down to the R. Soloed 9.5.93, definitely not the first, as someone did it just before me - probably not the first either.

βeta: Nice intro to slabs, try before moving onto chalkstorm. Yong provides a good warm up first.

βeta: A lovely climb which is very delicate with a tricky last move to top out. Leave your rack below as you won't be needing it on this one! A worthwhile climb deserving the star.
