Queen's Parlour Chimney* HS 4b

Rockfax Description
Follow Original Route but back-and-foot the exposed outer part of the chimney to ledges and a right-slanting exit. An astoundingly wild ascent for its day and still very intimidating. © ROCKFAX

Not the most straight-forward HS. Funny route with some interesting moves. Had us both smiling all the way up.

Got scared moving to the outside of the chimney so transferred to original route, which was really fun!

climbed by mistake for the original route after not finding the hole though the cave.

Didn't back and foot up the final exposed section which looked very bold - walked round the back cave instead to get to the big ledge. Epic rope drag forced me to belay from the ledge and do the final short crack as a second pitch. The final crack made the route for me, great moves on it.
