This fine slab, set above an undercut base and split centrally by a prominent wide crack, is the most popular section of the crag. Coincidentally it is also the point where the approach path meets the cliff. All the routes are worth doing though they have disproportionately tough starts. As elsewhere on the cliff, polished holds are a bit of a problem. Guidebook page 341.
