<< Charity < Central Rib | Grey Slab > Grey Arete >>
Probably the most classic of the classics here and one of the most popular routes in Wales. The polished nature of the holds makes it a good bit harder in the wet
1) 45m. A quartzy slab leads to ledges and an A-shaped niche in the overlap. Pull through this, more slab work then leads to a stance
2) 25m. The glossy twin-cracks give skiddy work (good runners) to a flake, step left and continue to a stance in a corner
3) 20m. More neat climbing on nice crinkly holds leads to a stance in the groove
4) 28m. Climb the groove and sidestep the bulge leftwards, to reach ledgy ground
5) 18m. Continue until things rear up and an escape left is required.
