The right-hand side of the slab is climbed via a trio of mantelshelves - the first is the crux, though the one to reach the ledge of the 'bunk' is not without interest.

The first mantle is pretty tasty as well.

This is one route I found easy at the grade, even in damp conditions, but then I am tall. Easy (but reachy) after a slightly bold (and reachy) start.

I personally found the last mantel the easier than the first section.

The first mantle is the hardest by far and requires total faith in frcition to even reach the hold. the top mantles are just a bit reachy and thuggish.
Jon Greengrass - 17/Jun/03

first mantle is easily the hardest. the other two you can just jump, lock and stand.

Another vote for the first mantle as crux
Reds - 08/Mar/04

Not only is the first mantle the most technical, it's also unprotected.
Tim G - 19/Apr/04

Agree that first mantel is the crux (nasty landing too). Last one is simple.

Yet another vote for the first mantle being the hardest. It felt quite delicate. Overall a good route with pleasant moves.
