Railtrack Slab | North Wales Climbs

Railtrack Slab

A great area the has seen many more people climbign on it since it was re-equipped and retro bolted in parts. Although some routes do still feel bold. It is best reach from either the ‘Tunnel of Love’ by Dali’s Wall or a short abseil from Looning The Tube area, abseil just below the tube.

Uncle Nick’s Broken Toe E5 6b
Starts to the left of ‘Between…’ under the middle of a small overlap. Make some technical and unprotected moves up to a good hold above the overlap. From here climb direct up to the bolt on ‘Here To Stay…’, totally unprotected but for sky hooks but thankfully not very difficult. Finish as for ‘Here To Stay…’ or over to the left at a similar grade.

Between Here & Now E3 6a. Two bolts added lower down and then re-equipped higher up. Lower off. 3/07
Here to stay, Gone Tomorrow. E3 6a. Re-equipped it is possible to start up Between Here and now and traverse into this route, E3 if done this way.3/07.
Psychodelicate F7c 25 metres***
An excellent climb. Follow the bolts across the traverse and up the thin slab. The first crux is a weird british 6c move between the fourth and fifth bolt, and the second crux is the same as the original up a very thin top few metres of slab.
