Climb up the center of the slab, until just over half height. Move left with care and then make the committing moves up the blind flake above.

The entry level slab at Froggatt.


Center of the slab.


Almost none, and nothing near the crux.

US climbers used to, say, Tuolumne should have no problems, as Sunset Slab is shorter and easier than reaching the 1st bolt on many Tuolumne slab climbs, even ones that don't rate "R"!
