Great memories of doing this nearly 40 yrs ago. That runout slab is still imprinted on the brain. A 3* climb.

Cheers for the comments. It was taken from the descent path after we had done Hammer.

It looks like the same severity of the climb when Adam West playing Batman walked up a seemingly vertical wall... I'm assuming it isnt! nice perspective

Awesome photo one of the best I've seen of the slabs, so nice to get a view from above bringing out the textures in the rock!

Superb picture, blue and red tops make this work amongst the grey granite, lovely composition and crushed perspecctive. I also quite enjoy the fact that the leader's shadow looks like a dromedarie or something similar.Having done this route yesterday I fear I was off line on this pitch as I lead up those two cracks on the left of the leaders shadow.hmmm, still, it all ends the same, amazing route!! Nicely captured.Have a 5.
