The third of the sea-level sectors is located 100m north of the Fallen Slab area (see opposite). It consists of three huge slabs, all facing out to sea. The middle slab is the largest, and forms a deep gully that keeps the routes out of sight until you are right on top of them. Guidebook page 98.

Pull onto the slab as for Suburban Dave, then follow the right-hand of the bolted lines on pockets and good friction.

The Erogenous Stone
12m. The non-line 2m left of the crack right is the longest on the slab and has no protection.
