Long Chimney Direct** VD
[Vincent's gone all camera shy., 2 kb]14m. Start right under the chimney and climb into a recess. Use the thin cracks in the roof to get out right, then trend up and left to gain the base of the main rift. Finish up this.

Came up through the little chimney on the right, tricky moves to get up but great holds in the main chimney

Mostly HVD with one tricky but well protected move onto the right hand slab just before moving left into the chimney itself. The chimney above is good honest fun.

Gear already placed but with hindsight could have led properly as ample protection above the awkward slab.

Great fun. The move to get your foot out right onto the slab is hard, particularly if you're inflexible - I'd give it 4b! The rest is great jug-pulling.

Such a great climb! Little tricky move onto the slab but great fun.

Great fun climb. Rock felt powdery lower down. Bold feeling moves to get into the chimney.

Nice easy climb except a risky move up onto the slab (half way up) after a short run-out, lots of gear.
Morgan P - Lead O/S - 10/Mar/12 with Tom Milburn, Lawrence Ian Furse

Great climb! Just one tricky move to get on the slab then great jug climbing from there. If fluted columns gets 3 stars this definitely deserves them.

Crucial holds were a bit greased up. Basically I was being a pussy and should have manned up. The gear was bomber and the moves were cool.

First climb outside this year! Plenty of midges for company and bats as the sun went down. An enjoyable climb.
