Rockfax Description
An easy slab leads to the right-hand edge of the overhang. Step onto it and pad gingerly all the way out to the (rounded) left arete and a harrowing finish above a big drop - care required. © Rockfax

βeta: Technically modest (I'd say 5a max, really) but very fluffable hard-to-read insecure moves on scrattly grit that never exhausts its shedding patina of fine crystals. Could do with lots more traffic ... until then it must take a remarkable kind of mentality to onsight!

βeta: 5b all the way. It's never strenuous - it just requires good footwork and there's a no-hands rest on the arete.

βeta: The Moorland Gritstone grade of E3 5a seemed dangerously wrong to me. Moving up from the break on the extreme left edge of the slab/arete looked more like 5c. I moved up (on top rope) just right of the edge and even this, easier line, was 5b at the very least. If you're dying (!) to do an E3 slab, then go for Four Pebble Slab rather than attempt this!
