The Looning the Tube Slab, with the chain visible ...


Recommended more for the unusual situation than for the actual climbing. Start along the old pipe before transferring to the rock and moving right to reach the base of the crack where a length of chain gives a runner. Up the crack to the top - may be loose in places.


At the right-hand end of the level is an obvious slab with a large piece of rusty pipe at its base.


A couple of bolts plus some gear, e.g. 2.5" cam for the crack
