Engaging grunting moves at the crux with the risk of toppling out backwards from the chimney to keep you concentrating.

Just a chimney really - any narrower and it would be an off-width. A bit of a scrape and shuffle.Odd move to get off the ground, maybe mthis gives it the H of the VD.

Good route for udging up. Take a long sling for the low chockstone to protect
