The centre of the steep slab is a Curbar testpiece, being both technical and bold. Climb directly to the runner slot on One Step Beyond then continue up the sustained thin crack above. A microwire is useful in the crack but it is hard to place.

The low runner slot is getting quite badly worn - worth checking out. Also it might be possible to get one of the new small zero friends in the finishing crack where a rock'n roller? went.

The low runner slot as above is getting worn, when a friend of mine did the route there was actually a sall flake of rock stuck in the slot.

You can also protect the lower section before the slot with some poor sky hooks.
