Doesn't even look fun from the ground.

Description 

"It's a proper slab, this one." - Anonymous British climber.

If its polished limestone slabs that you've come for, saddle up--you've hit paydirt. This line is quite sustained, with several engaging, cruxy bits that slab aficianados will enjoy. If you're not one of those, move along to one of the many other fine routes on this wall.

Stick clip the first bolt and make tenuous moves to gain the slab. Ooze upwards on disappointing rounded edges & shallow dishes. A brief bulge at mid-height offers some respite, with nice juggy pockets before the slabbin' resumes above. The final bit to the anchor also offers a few nice incut pockets on steeper rock.

Location 

This route is on the same section cliff is Magrana & Entretres. Its the fourth route left of Magrana, and is immediately right of the popular double cracks of Okemaka.

Protection 

~8 bolts to 2BA. Stick clip recommended.
