Hard and requiring some guts to circumvent the roof. Up to a small ledge and then thinly to a groove. Rest. Go right to the overhang, under the rippled chimney; then go left (not right like the parent route Williams' Chimney) and through the break.

Blowing a gale. Got all flustered, messed up the overhang a few times then took a rest on the rope. Annoying as there's really only one hard move IMO. Now I'll have to do it cleanly ASAP.

Hung on to the overhang for about 10 mins trying to get a full set of nuts free from a crack. First shot at an E1!
