Up the left side of the slab past four bolts. Beware of some loose rock. Single ring hanger anchor, best used as a runner to reach the anchor at 'Shiver Me Timbers'.

Comments

The following changes were made (March 2018):

Route #3: The 'single ring hanger anchor' has been reinstated as a double bolt anchor.
Route #4: Due to poor rock quality, the anchor has been removed. Lack of adequate rock quality in the vicinity meant that the anchor was not replaced, but a large bollard can be used as an anchor for this excellent beginner slab.

June 2015, additional anchors installed with FA approval.
