Pensioners Slab 20m E1 5b ★★
24-May-2017, Frank Booth Andy Tilney

Climbs the slab direct between Ripples and The Thin Manipulator (see Duddon New Routes Pages for details of all new routes on Pen). Gives nice climbing and is safer than Ripples.

Climb the slab using the crack on the right for protection  ( 2 runners used on FA); continue up the middle to a good nut slot, from here straight up the slab for about 5m to small ledge and some good runners, from here go left to the chain belay.

  1. Excellent climbing on immaculate rock. (Nothing wrong with the eyesight of these pensioners). Can confirm grade and quality. Have cleaned out the choked cracks and wall above to give a direct finish.
    Direct Finish. Same grade and quality extending the pleasure by about six metres. Follow Frank’s line but just keep going direct to the top of the crag.
