Crack and Chimney >>
Some good climbing although unfortunately the hard moves are avoidable by stepping right into the chimney. © ROCKFAX
Climb the step 1m left of the corner chimney. Up the crack in the wall above to a thin crack and a finger jam to reach good holds and then the overhang above. (No bridging of using the right arete!)

Pumpy, but with some good moves on solid finger locks. One of the hardest parts is trying to keep the route independent of the severe.
