Not as green as it appeared from the bottom if you stay away from the grass. Some loose grit towards the top. Awkward bridging required for not so reachy people.

1st lead of a chimney climb - no probs with push up and exit. Quick easy finish thereafter. Beginning of route slippery due to moisture and growth. Nice finish to the day.
