Vandal and Ann
| HVS 5b|
<< Aramis < Canis | Bridal Piton Slab > Rough Justice >>
A minor moorland-classic that needs dry conditions to be enjoyed to the full. Start at two small holes below the remains of an iron spike at 5m. 1) 5b, 14m. Climb direct up the slab from the two holes, initially with great difficulty, to the summit of the huge flake. Move right to belay below the rounded crack in the upper wall. 2) 5a, 13m. Access the wide, rounded crack in the upper wall via a tricky pull through the bulge. Follow the crack and slabs above to the top.
