<< Ochre Slab Route l < Black Slab | Dong > The Armchair >>
Deceptively steep climbing with some exciting moments. Start at the base of a dark right to left-trending vein of rock with a small grassy hollow in it at 7m.
1) 4c, 22m. Climb up from the vein to gain the overhang capped recess just right of a short right-facing corner. Pull up past the overhang's right end and climb flakes and cracks to a ledge and belay next to a big pinnacle.
2) 4b, 20m. Move up cracks on the left of the pinnacle before breaking out left and continuing on up through the final overhangs. Not in current guidebook.

Lovely route - so good we climbed it twice in a week, the second time in the rain. One of the best, and amazing value for VS 4c. 3 star for me
