Rockfax Description

This great combination is a fantastic way to experience the east side of Vivian. The pitches are mostly quality and well balanced grade-wise. A couple of harder alternatives can up both the quality and the grade to E3.
1) HVS 5a. Mental Lentils (p.§§§).
2) E1 5c. The Monster Kitten (p.§§§). Walk across leftwards.
3) E2 5c. Too Bald to be Bold (p.§§§). Move down to a hanging belay below the slab.
4) E2 5c. The Turkey Chant (p.§§§). At the top walk across to the Dervish slab.
5) E2 5b. Last Tango in Paris (p.§§§). Alternatively, climb Comes the Dervish for the E3 variation.
6) E2 5c. The Missing Link (p.§§§). A connecting pitch only, From the lower-off, swing onto the Ritter Sport Level.
7) E2 5c. The Madness (p.§§§). Choose Ritter Sport for the E3 variation. © Rockfax

Jim blackford 17 Apr AltLd O/S Worth doing to explore the quarry but lots of loose stuff, as you'd expect. Led mentil lentils, 2nd monster kitten - both nice. led too bald to be bold and traversed right from bolts on which felt VS or HVS rather than e2 - the direct line is definately eliminate. followed the turkey chant and led the rest apart from missing link.

justdoit ??, 2018 Lead O/S really good fun link up, could do this quite quickly as a lot of the belays are bolted, was blowing out of my ass on monster kitten, just found it very hard and awkward. went to go and do dervish but due to the heat and midges, got a bit scared at the start, so did last tango. would definitely do again.
