A long and varied line whose name refers to the starting slab. Start at the low black slab that has a wide crack on its left.
1) 12m. Using a combination of the thinner crack on the slab and the wide crack, climb to the easier-angled section below a steep chimney. Make a couple of moves up the chimney from where good holds allow a step left onto a good ledge and belay next to a large spike. It is possible to climb the initial slab on the right using a diagonal crack for the feet at about the same grade.
2) 12m. Climb the cracks above the spike to a ledge, move right and finish up a left leading corner-line.
