1) 5a, 10m. Excellent. Climb the steep, green and awkward groove in the left wall of Fat Man's Chimney to a good stance.2) 5a, 10m. The steep cracks above lead to a ledge on the left and a technical finish back right. Full value for the grade with both pitches being upgraded from 4c by popular demand. © Rockfax

Lead in one pitch. 1st bit felt like awkward vs 4c. Crux felt much harder.
Ughhhhh I can't jam
Led P2 as Bush wanted to pitch it (obvs), upper crux looked like it was going to be hard, but with the help of two delightful hand jams it was a doddle! Really great moves up the last section just wished it could have carried on.

I am glad I didnt get to lead this. An awkward start and a steep top with hand-jamming action and nothing for your feet. Felt harder than the sloth!

GREAT ROUTE, led as one long pitch which was ace! Nice lay backing on the first pitch and perfect jams in a steep situation on the 2nd :D Thought 5a was fair, but the name is a bit miss leading as it is a completely independent line to the excellent Lean Man's Climb.
