<< The Pump < Slape Direct | Brant > Stroll On >>
The parallel line to Slape Direct gives a contrasting route. Start below the crack 3 metres to the right of Slape Direct.
1) 5c, 20m. The thin crack which leads to a junction with Brant is no pushover. Follow the groove above to a tree belay.
2) 5b, 25m. Take the large flake behind the tree to a smooth wall. Move boldly up this wall in fear of the ankle-snapping ledge below and breathe a sigh of relief when you gain the better-protected groove. Follow this to a ledge.
