A good fun romp up loose rock and grass into the welcome embrace of a slimy chimney. Tidied up after the winter retreats. first 20ft of crag still under snow and lots of grass wash off on Cleansweep etc.
Oh, and face the right way for the backing and footing sections:o

I finally emerged from the chimney into the rain after lots of committed thrutching, and swearing. Don't wear a gore tex jacket on this one. It will not survive intact. Facing the right way may have made it go a tad easier. An adventerous day out for sure!

A horrible climb. Only to be attempted in old clothes which will be shreded by the determined use of bridging required. Your back is likely to be your most useful appendage in ascending this.
The crack exudes a greenish-black slime of mud and alge augmented with loose boulders.
Would become straightforward when filled with snow (best thing for it!) in the winter - but this would requie a very substantial amount of snow and it's likely to be enormously more difficult in lean conditions when large chokestones and overhangs would make climbing the gully impossible and force an ascent of the gully walls.
