A great line that tackles the cracks in the smooth wall right of the Slab Routes. This is the original version which makes the most of the wall at a reasonable grade. There is an alternative second pitch at a bold E1 5b. Start below a straight crack in the middle of the wall.1) 5a, 28m. Climb up easy ground to the crack. Follow it to some tricky moves that gain a small ledge, then pull up left to another crack. This leads to a spike belay on The Slabs Route 1. 2) 4b, 10m. Climb direct up easy ground to a big ledge. Escape by walking/scrambling off carefully leftwards from here.2a) E1 5b, 12m. Move right from the belay to below a diagonal crack. Climb the crack and then the wall rightwards past a streak to the ledge. Small wires protect. © Rockfax
