Start at the left edge of the toe of the slab, as for Botchergate Glare. Climb this and continue directly up a thin crack  heading for a V groove in the overlap. Up the V groove and continue in a straight line to the headwall. Take the steep corner crack and continue on the upper slab to the top.

Yellow Line: Borrowdale Stare VS 4b













Mandy Glanvill – First Ascent of Deerest. “I found it very thin slab climbing, could be E1 or hard HVS. I had a few Micro-cams and on the crux popped one on the crack to the right at the third height small overlap”.
