'The Great Slab'..Cloggy
Colin Kirkus'epic,pre war first ascent of the 600' Great Slab of Clogwyn du Arddu,(The Black Cliff) is the stuff of legend. Sixty years later this classic VS (5.7) route finds itself listed as Cloggy's easiest climb...such is life ! Whatever it's technical characteristics,'The Great Slab' is still a great route and Cloggy's most popular climb. Looking down from the penultimate stance,Dave Williams and Martin Davies-two of Wales' finest- follow the easy but poorly protected slab across to the outrageously exposed arete.
