<< Jabberwocky < Outside Edge Route | Kirkus Route > Kirkus Direct >>
The original route of the slab is a good'un, which can be attempted in all weather by the competent. There are plenty of ledges for extra or alternative belays if desired. Start towards the right-hand side of the face, by a grassy pedestal.
1) 30m. Climb a wall, then head left past several ledges to belay at the base of a groove.
2) 20m. Continue diagonally leftwards to reach Sunset Ledge. Walk along this to belay below a chimney/groove.
3) 25m. Climb the chimney/groove to a slab. Continue up and belay where the angle eases.
4) 35m. Climb up leftwards to join Outside Edge Route. Follow the crest to the top.
FA. D.Pye and party 4.4.1926
How can a 2 star route be a Top 50 route? Outside Edge is much better.
