<< Central Rib < Hope  |  Demetreus > Rowan Tree Slabs >>

The right-hand of the trio of saintly routes is often damp, though it is well worthwhile even in these conditions. Start under the right-hand sheet of slab where its undercut base ends.<br/>
1) 35m. Step up then trend left up the edge of the slab before heading direct to a big stance. Hard-won gear.<br/>
2) 30m. Follow the quartz rails out left to a crack and head up the slab to its left to a belay. <br/>
3) 12m. An easy groove above leads to a stance on the right under the steep west wall.<br/>
4) 28m. Climb leftwards onto the next sheet of slab and climb this anywhere but best on its left edge to a stance shared with Hope, hence often busy. A neat pitch.<br/>
5) 42m. More broken ground leads up then left to reach a polished step. Move up this and step left onto the large terrace below the upper walls. This pitch is shared with Hope. <br/>
Escape left along the 'Easy Way' or continue on upwards via a route on the Continuation Wall.
