Rockfax Description
8m. The chimney at the back of the ledge is pleasant enough and is easiest if you don't get in too deep. Finish on the right. © Rockfax

I suspect I got too deep in the chimney because it felt a lot harder than HVD. Making the move out from the chimney onto the slab where the chimney narrows felt pretty bold, but actually the gear was good and the slab was good... but getting it nearly required new shorts!

Good, if you don't get stuck in the chimney :-) Trick is to keep out as much as possible and use the right-hand wall.

Really nice if you bridge it properly. We have a real maul with this a while ago, when we all went too deep in!

It's a right maul if you get too deep in the chimney, once you move out to the right on the slab you've sussed it.
