<< Pinnacle Arete < The Hand Traverse | The Boulder > The Boldest >>
The 'easy' introduction to this slab follows the left edge as you would expect from the name. It gives amenable climbing with spacey protection. Start by a break below the left arete of the slab.
1) 4c, 15m. Step onto the slab and balance tentatively up to gain a small stance (peg).
2) 5a, 35m. Move up and left to a ledge around the arete and continue past a hard section to another ledge. Pull back right onto the front face of the Boulder and head up to a short groove which leads to grassy ledges. Scramble off above - best to stay roped up and take care when it is wet.
