Rockfax Description
Climb into a small recess then make difficult moves to the ledge. The thin crack on the left is well battered but a discreet wire to the right protects moves on slopers to easy ground - varied. © Rockfax

βeta: Quite easy for E2 but probably about right I suppose with the mid-heigth crack getting a bit worn.

βeta: There is good gear on the right side of the slab before you make any hard moves (small friend - Z3) making the route much less bold. The El Cap Finish over the top roof is worth doing.

βeta: The poor runners in the thin crack are fairly useless. The wire below the ledge is a long way below when you are on the upper slab. Bold.

βeta: Easy sloper pulling for the bold. Terrifying for the limestone climber, I'd imagine.

βeta: Definitely easier gaining the ledge on the left. A decent looking small wire can be fiddled in below foot level on the right side of the ledge. This, combined with a bomber cam lower on the route, should prevent a deck from the steep slab.
