Classic trad struggle - excellent ! Lower chimney strenuous but not that difficult. Found the start of the upper chimney hard, polished foot holds and not not much for hands - worked out a move which felt more 4c than 4b but my partner seemed to find something to find it a bit easier so maybe I missed a hold :-)

Superb end to the day after Second Pinnacle Rib. Not a VS though... although stiff for a severe if your not too good on your "traditional" skills!"

Clivest - 2nd - 09/Apr/11 with Dafydd Llywelyn

Stiff for grade, but there is protection were you need it, then no gear for top section but it eases by then, but a few hold wobble. A hex got stuck so absailed back down to retrieve it, then rope got stuck, all good fun!
