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.

Follow rounded groves past overlaps and a small bulge on the open face to the left of Sinister. Belay at a small stance with a tree, or blast through the second pitch with a 70 m rope.2. Follow the blocky corner/ramp up and rightward from the belay. Make a few awkward moves where the corner gets tighter and steeper. Belay from...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
