Description

British Trad Grade: Diff

Climb the easy slab using the right-facing flakes until you reach the corner and can climb atop the portion of the boulder that forms the bottom of the "cave."

Not worth climbing when green and wet.

Location

Look for the obvious "cave" about two-thirds of the way up the North Face. The slab down-right of this is Bridle Piton Slab.

Descend via the chimney if it's dry and not overgrown - otherwise will likely have to make an anchor in the "cave" and top out on "Ann" (the short 5.9+ second-pitch from "Vandall and Ann"). N.B. It can be very hard to hear your partner from the cave once they've topped out due to the high winds that are often blowing through the area, so make sure you have a system in place for communicating some other way.

Protection

Doesn't protect super well (1 maybe 2 places for pro on the slab), but a very easy climb so it never feels "dangerous"
