Dave led this and I soloed up after him to clear up. Are you supposed to go straight up or traverse direct from the ledge? Not clear. We went straight up.

The top traverse is a bit worrying on second, if your leader (understandably) doesn't place anything: you could whip round the corner and into the chimney if it goes wrong!
