The Slide

(4 routes)

Better than it sounds, apparently. The first three routes share a single bolt belay; for Charlie’s Other Route use the pine tree.

Type: 
Crag
Aspect: 
North West
Access: 

The Slide is best reached from Punk Rock: walk south-west to the next ridge and down the sheep trails until you can see the Slide in a gully on your left.

Climb the flake then left to the bolt. A small CD can be used before the belay.

The smooth face at the right-hand end of the crag. Start below and left of the bolt, and climb direct. A little contrived – only really 19 if you stay in the middle past the bolt.
