<< Jabberwocky < Outside Edge Route | Kirkus Route > Kirkus Direct >>
The original route of the slab is a fine route which can be attempted in all weather by the competent. There are plenty of ledges for extra or different 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.
