Moir Slab

(6 routes)

The glacier-worn scoop below the north face has several quality slab routes, the best of which is Lapland, a superb quality slab climb. The routes are not climbable early in the season due to snow-melt and if the neve is high you might find yourself starting halfway up the initial pitches.

 A continually interesting pitch. From the ledge climb slightly left, then back right through tricky overlap (small-medium cams useful), continue to top belay past four bolts and occasional natural pro placements. Descend via rappel.
