Overhanging Chimney Variation >>
[Stacey on 3rd pitch of Overlapping Wall, 3 kb]75m, 3 pitches. An exciting route with memorable moments. 1) 4c, 27m. Tackle the wall left of the large overhang for 6m then traverse right to a ledge. Continue straight up to a stance below the chockstone of Overhanging Chimney (VS). 2) 5b, 21m. Start up the groove, then gain the left arete. Head left, passing the overlap and continue left until a groove leads back right to a ledge, then a corner and a belay. 3) 4c, 27m. Traverse up and right across the wall to gain the final exposed rib. © ROCKFAX

OffshoreAndy - AltLd - 30/Aug/07 with UKC Rob Greenwood

I lead the two VS pitches (1+3). P1 was incredibly bold for VS. 30 ft off the deck with no pro after a traverse on creaking jugs. Unnerving! P3 was wrong. dried moss anyone?
Wilbur - AltLd O/S - 07/Apr/07 with Morgan

got lost on the last pitch as the moves right looked a lot harder than 4c. pro can be a little fiddly and the moves over the bulge don't feel very secure due to the slopy nature of the rock.
Morgan Woods - AltLd O/S - 07/Apr/07 with Stacy & Will
