excellent route, but so green that I was nervous on the solo.concentrating on keeping the foot placements very precise.
Trefo - Solo O/S - 13/May/09

You get exactly what you expect - a chimney. Good fun and well protected, although I did move one cam most of the way up with me.

I reckon it is harder than VD, but I did it in walking boots in the damp, which probably made it feel harder than it was.
