The full-height corner in the centre of the slab provides a superb and very sustained climb that requires good bridging technique. Start at the base of the left-hand of two corners that lead up to the base of the main line.
44m. Climb the left-hand corner easily to the overhang at the base of the corner and pull up into it. Sustained and technical moves gain an easing at mid-height. The upper section of the corner provides more great climbing.

Stuck wire at the overlap doesn't help, as it's rotting away and eliminates the best gear at this point. Lovely, thoughtful moves
