Well, set off to do this but retreated the traverse as definitely not Severe. Ended up doing an amalgam of routes as we did the traverse along the Stennis Arete Route, then most of Stennis Arete but finished up Maelstrom Chimney. Very enjoyable and interesting climbing though and a great position above the sea.

Traverse pitches were atmospheric and would be very hard and terrifying for a Severe leader. Pete didn't thank me for choosing this 'nice little chilled Severe.' Pete led up the lovely easy finish of Stennis Chimney
