Optimist's Chimney VS 4c
Deserves a star purely for still being there! Climbs the chimney of the obvious pinnacle, could do with some scaffolding to keep it up! Hideously dirty, loose, badly protected, and only recommendable to masochists.

Loads of loose rock. Got spat out before placing any gear, then rested on gear on second attempt. would recommend to anyone wanting to experience an easy off-width

Not a difficult climb, however not the most pleasant since it is very dirty and some fairly loose rock about.

Almost cut my climbing career well and truly short when i fell of this. Rockfall on the route pulled me and my gear off resulting in a broken leg. This chimney is a loose peice of shit and should be avoided at all costs!

Dirty with loose rock and not much protection. But quite fun to second nonetheless.
