Angelus Vicia, 5.10a

1st Pitch- 30m- 5.7/ This first pitch is by far the easiest pitch of the day. Just follow the corner left of the tree up and then traverse right below a small roof on easy ground and continue up to a large ledge below the open book corner. We combined pitches 1 and 2, but I advise not doing that, if for nothing else, because the corner above is quite dirty and challenging and you can avoid using pitons if you can make it all the way to the top where there is a gully.

Re: great shot Dow.

thanks Radek, yeah, a little rough...you know the temptation probably...you always want to say, "yeah that was a great experience", particularly from the adventure perspective....but I would hate for someone to go climb it themselves based on my recommendation...still fun times though...cheers.
