A pleasant slab with some popular routes, about 60m in length, leading up to Lunchtime Ledge and then the Evening Wall above. The easiest way up is "The Arete" (5.4) on the right, with more fun slab-padding on "Dexter" and "Sinister" nearby. The left hand end of the slab is a bit more serious, with the famously bold "Mike's Mistake" and other, harder climbs providing runout entertainment for slab fans.

The routes on Morning Slab end on a large, tree-covered ledge, called Lunchtime Ledge. From here it is possible to abseil off a tree with 60m double ropes, but more fun to continue up one of the routes on Evening Wall, and top out on the cliff-top footpath.

Getting There 

From the Main Area car park and old toilet block, the slab is straight ahead of you.

A winding line of balancey step-overs takes you past the right edge of the massive roof, then a final pitch of varied face climbing pops you out on the Downs. An undeservedly less popular route for the area, but it gets you away from the crowds. Note that this climb bypasses Lunch-time Ledge and tops out the Evening Wall. P1) Climb up to an overlap on the left-hand side of a hanging nose feature. Make...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
