The well-named blocky cracks bounding the left edge of Great Slab. Used as a descent by the competent and low in the grade.

The quickest way down for routes in this area. For going up only worthwhile for your first route or so.

Not sure about the votes for this one, how many of those voting for Easy M or Easier are beginners? Otherwise, it makes a nice ascent in big boots and rucksacks.

"Big boots and rucksacks" sounds more like scrambling to me. Scrambling sounds more like "easier than climbing".

Most scrambling guides these days include routes that are graded up to Diff or even VDiff

Inspired by watching Hard Grit for the tenth time or summat I on site soloed this with no shoes on the other day. How do you grade a flight of stairs?
