Soapgut (Chimney Route Finish)** HS 4b

Rockfax Description
The slippery corner offers a fine line.
1) 4b, 30m. Climb the corner, often damp, until a stride round the arete finds a belay.
2) 4a, 15m. Chimney Route. Move right to the crack and follow this and easier climbing to the top. © ROCKFAX

Need to go back. Excellent first pitch; despite bold and polished start, heads up a groove with lots of potential jugs. Got to first belay and then rained stopped any further climbing.

Terribly good traditional fun, included use of kneebars, slimy finger jams, vegetation and even some bad language.

Backed off pitch 1 as very polished and one tiny wire only; fell off seconding it. Soapgut lived up to its name, but lots of gear, enjoyable climbing. Chimney route entertaining too!
Tanya Savage - AltLd - 01/Oct/11 with Neil Pacey

Excellent combo, I got the first and third pitches (not counting walk to Soapgut). First pitch requires care, very glassy and poor gear, enjoyed seconding Soapgut, well named, third pitch really nice climbing.
