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

A beautiful climb up the blunt arete at the right of the Morning Slab, probably the best route at its grade in the Gorge. The rock has got very polished at parts, which is especially evident at the crux about 2/3 of the way up. The slick rock has caused climbers to attempt to bypass this via a slightly steeper line to the right. The climb is about 40m long and easily manageable as a single pitch; however guidebooks often split it into two or even three pitches....[more] Browse More Classics in International
