Andromeda HVS 5a
30m, 2 pitches. April 2015 note: The first pitch is lost to moss and vegetation and is likely to remain that way now. However, the excellent second pitch is restored and it is possible to climb it by abseiling into the tree stance of Cygnus.

1995 guide description is ok up to the protruding peg. A tricam 1.5 is essential for a key shothole at one third height. After the protruding peg, the recommended finish is over the bulge above and leftwards up the pillar above, to an airy top-out. (The 'original' finish described in the 1995 guide is a bit pointless; it simply comprises a couple of traversing moves to intercept and finish up Perseus).
