Had a route finding issue on the 3rd wandering pitch looking for a left traverse into a crack. Ended up on B route tricky layback crack. As of 3/10/14 there's a piece of blue ab tat which is the start of the actual crack and traverse NOT the ramp into the spicy and razor sharp holded B route crack. We came back away from B route and finished the route as per the description and took the right chimney due to failing light, very easy last two pitches, probably VDiff.

Le Chevalier Mal Fet 13/Sep/14 Lead

Lead the direct start to B&S but went off route after it. The FRCC guide states that it misses out the 1st pitch of B+S, but it in fact misses out the first TWO piches. This confusion, and rushing to beat the light meant we went off route, eventually finishing up B route.

due to a lot of people decided to finish via "B" Route from Amen Corner onwards, which is NEVER S+. no flipping way, felt harder than the direct start lower down. despite the name Green Chimney was a delight.

Found the pitches on the Bracket a little weird so linked some up and made stances above amen corner, eventually finishing in five pitches. Still awesome though with incredible variety. Severe climbing at its best with some thinking needed at points. Loved the diagonal crack to start of with too. Lead 1,3 & 5.

My first multi-pitch in over 20 years. Danny's first ever multi-pitch. Danny fell 5 times on the first pitch. I seconded the bracket with the kitchen sink in my rucksac and an impending massive pendulum. We're doing it again with less gear, better rope work and in less than 5 hours.
