[The Chimney, 3 kb]25m. Route now clean and free of gorse, the top out has been dug back to allow an escape from the corner. Start by the large tree and traverse up into the corner at either side (left has been cleared by starting up cracking up) Use a short chimney to gain the corner and bridge up this to finish.

managed to gain the top, horribly gravelly. Fell ended up hanging upside down just below the overhang, top felt much harder than hvs

Ally showed me how its done using those things on the end of legs ! good lead esp right after watching my dramatic whipper.

didnt use bridging instead going for lock off on right wall, the pump consumed me and I lobbed off onto my gear just before I peeled. Upside down fall, scary and v lucky I didn't hit ledges. Finish much harder than 5a in my IMO. Ourobouros much easier. Must get climbing more as stamina is piss poor.

Nice climbing, especially the pull through the over hang and the top corner. Still dirty, but gave it a wee scrub as had to abb for gear anyway. Get on it.

adw07 - 2nd O/S - 12/Jun/10 with Andy Main

backed off this from the last move, so Liyen gave it a go, took a big fall then seb managed to scrape up it so seconded after, its much cleaner now and should improve rapidly.

Large amounts of earth on route from recent work on climbing center, also now restricted access to quarry and we were told not to climb by climbing center worker!
Matt crawford - 2nd - 30/Sep/07 with Robbie Miller

Fun climb a bit dirty, its pretty tough cleaning off your holds as you climb. Theres a pretty horrible steep earthy bank scattered with gorse bushes at the top.
