A pleasant pitch up the inset corner on the left side of the slab. Quite strenuous in parts, but well protected. The barnacle-encrusted start is the crux, which soon gives way to good stemming and lay backing up the slabby corner crack. The top 5m or so is up grass, not too steep and protected with a thin sling on a spike.
The left-facing corner at the left end of the slab.
The crack in the corner is pretty wide, 3" perhaps at points. Smaller protection options are often available, so take a full set or 2 of wires. There are 2 fixed pins at the top for a belay. These can be backed up with a small nut and an orange mastercam.
