Lucas Chimney* S 4a
10m.

Rockfax Description
10m. The narrow rift in the main angle is a well-protected struggle and the leftward exit is a pig; the best advice is to try staying high. Often green early in the season or after rain, in which case it is worthy of a manky HS 4c. © ROCKFAX

First tight chimney - managed to make all my gear look well worn - didn't find much gear before the "ledge" on the left so had to make sure I was squeezed in snug. :)
