A bold classic. Climb slanting cracks to the bulges. Psyche, then pull through these and climb the steep slab rightwards, carefully, to reach easy ground. Beware the sandy exit.


A very fine route up a natural line of least resistance on a fine slab. Tricky-ish to the overlap and decent pro to protect a lovely crux move over it. Then a bit bolder... Easy for E2.

The ledges above have been excavated, however some sand remains on them. Take care to avoid knocking it down.

The lines in the rockfax are completely wrong.

The lines in the guidebook and the description needs checking because at present it describes pretty much any route on the whole slab. I tried this yesterday and as a result ended up on an E5/6 instead of a classic E2. Imagine if that was your first E2 lead!

So where exactly does this go? I climbed up to a small diagonal crack/undercut in the overhang but it seemed way harder than 5b to surmount the overhang!

a classic. soloed it on one of those days where everything is right. absorbing, never too hard but requires concentration. lovely:)
