Quite tough, but hugely entertaining. Top out is interesting - but I cracked it once I stripped all the gear off the sides of my harness.

Really nice. Keep out of the chimney and use the holds on the left.

Difficult for tall people, as useful to be able to turn body in the top of the chimney
Grotty, tricky and hard for the grade, especially the top out!

Great open chimney, avoided stepping on the nest halfway up!
A real tussle, especially the top out.
Per previous comments below - a right stuggle. Opted to traverse right and climb the handhold-less crack instead! Not what I had expected from a starred route.
tricky for hvd
Looks grotesque, but is actually quite pleasant.
Climb Ok but the chimmney at top is too thin fr my shoulders Had a stuggle to get out

Just my sort of thing - a thrutchy chimney needing to be wrestled into submission :)
|Laurence Everitt||07/Mar/09||Lead O/S|
Horrible! Got stuck in the chimney at the top, traversed out right and went up the crack instead. I'll have to have another go and try the layback approach at the top!
VD in guide, good tussle all the way. awful.

Grunted up, hard work, good laugh although I left most of the skin off of my knuckles in the chimney.

I reckon it deserves more than the 1* that the rockfax guide gives it!
Wonderful, two nice laybacks the last one is to stop getting stuck in the chimney.
only my third lead, so I picked it not to be too hard. Was interesting to a point. Never felt threatened even when I was a mterplus above my protection. A bit of a scrape getting over the top.
