Adjacent Routes
<< Bloodstone < Sloose  |  Sixth Crack > Razzle Dazzle >>

This almost-popular route follows a devious line up the main slab. Start below the second crack right of the corner. Climb the crack for 12m then switch to the crack on the left. Follow this over the bulge and then move left again to yet another crack. Follow this one to the top.
Variation, VS 4c - Climb direct up the first crack right of the corner to join the original, then step left below the bulge and climb straight up to the finishing crack.

good long route but route finding is a bit confusing

These are not QUALITY slab routes..they are loose, dirty and the scene of many accidents...for good slab climbing go to Giltar or Gower!

I can't quite agree with John Alcock's comment. With the exception of the deadly "Sloose", and the presumed exception of the filthy-looking "Bloodstone," I found the routes on the main slab to be a very pleasent set, and never loose or dirty. In particular, this was a great route.

Not much of a line but pleasant enough.
