DescriptionAlmost certainly the most-climbed route at Mentmore, "Daniel" is a favorite of program groups and new climbers. However, this is NOT a great route to get new climbers started on. It may be only 5.8, but it's slabby and thin, with some technical moves and very few jugs or secure rests. Even the very first move can shut some new climbers down. I recommend "Big Blobs of Love" "STD" or "Why Crack" as better 'first climbs' on the Original Side.
Climb the slabby face to a steeper section above the 3rd bolt with a potentially challenging couple of moves (crux). Finish on the slab and pull over lip.
LocationLook for the boltline ascending the light-colored, sandy slab directly in the middle of the Slab Wall. If you're between the cliff and the Inclined Boulder, you're too far to the right (east). Lower off or walk off.
