The Great Slab Area

Description 

A more perfect piece of gritstone slab cannot be found. The Great Slab area at Froggatt is famous for bold thin lines that reward the brave, and are sure to severely punish the foolhardy.

None of the climbs are easy and all are great routes, the majority being true classics.


Getting There 

This slab of rock lies just to the right of Sickle Buttress.

In essence a direct start to The Great Slab.The first half is both scary and hard. Once standing on a good ledge at head height, make either a desperate lunge, or an even harder mantle move to gain the right slopping rail.One the rail is gained the climbing is easier, but definitely thought provoking.Finish as for The Great Slab....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
