[Me on Black Rock, 2 kb]18m. A grubby low-grade route up an impressive feature with a choice of lines. Sandy throughout. The odd Right-hand Exit creeps along a ledge below the cliff top at HVD. © ROCKFAX

Lots of well protected ledges up the RHS of over-size chimney. Using Chimney, layback, and mantelshelf. Value for Money! Slipped on first rock contact - psychology! Got over this and enjoyed. Funny how "safe" gear are the ones which ping out!
