cmsg - 2nd dog - 01/May/11 with John Tomlinson

Set out on this up first wall, Sean then decided to continue up the grisly polished chimney, so we ended up doing a combination of the Original and Variation routes, chimney grim with a sack on, took one slither off the polish but jammed myself in the chimney after a foot, so managed to stay on without weighting the rope. Done as 1 pitch.
