Rockfax Description
16m. The shallow overhanging groove in the left wall of Parsons' Chimney proves to be quite superb. Layback the lower section and bridge the upper, with an exciting finish on huge jugs. An Almscliff rarity, a route that is low in the grade! © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The corner groove left of Parson's Chimney is a classic. Layback the polished flake to a cave and then climb the corner crack which peters out. Make you last runners good for a runout to finish on superb jugs.

My wife scared the shit out of me when I was a little run out at the high, super reachy crux on this pumpy 5.9 and she asked me, If you fall, should I run down hill? Showed her too many gritstone videos before introducing her to the real thing. ;) Turns out it would have been nowhere near groundfall (tho prob a 20ft whipper) but all the sudden I felt like I was being stupid and extreme and so was trembling from there to the top out. A local later showed me I could have placed an Alien or Totem or tricam (none of which I have) in the finger pocket you use for your left hand to lock off on the big reach, and I made the move another day with her pro taking up much of the hold, but it felt significantly harder. FWIW, I'm 5'7" on a good day. Saw plenty of longer folks do this move with no lock off or stem/smear/knee drop. Rating this high 5a for shorter folks like me. I found this climb more interesting than Great Western, for which I got much more psyched up.

woop first HVS woop. Great conditions at cliff, not too much wind and really sunny. could see for miles. started of up, got good nut and good hex in the laybacking crack and then a big cam in the horizontal break. at this point Dan said 'Rob, your bottom piece of gear has come out'. Poo. started off up the next bit, got to 2 good holds after which a stretch to a sloper requires a bump up and good reach to get to the finishing jugs. these holds are really good but I was pretty pumped and so it felt liek a mega struggle and had Dan a bit worried. topped out fine though, excellent. well please :)

robolomassi 01/Feb/15 Lead dnf

an absolutely freezing day at the cliff, wind cut like a knife. laybacked to the first horizontal break with good gear easily but then stopped feeling my hands and decided it was time to come down. at the bottom was almost sick and in quite a lot of pain. poo.

I got told this was a VS and was surprised at the long runout to the top. Wouldn"t quite stetch to HVS though. Right on the boundry. Superb moves, a bit of faith required when going for jugs near top.

Initially did it for a lead, did all the hard stuff then I fell off on the twin 1in dishes as, without beta, I didn't know the next holds were the jugs! Was trying to rest and got so pumped - 6m inverted fall. Ed lead up the remainder and I 2nded with no problems except pumped to shit at the same point again.

Superb climb that requires confidence because you have to move so far above your gear on a short route (20m?) that you know that if you crap out at the top you'll deck - not that you should as there are jugs galore but it's not called 'overhanging' for nothing.

think this one is pretty height dependent - certainly felt very tough for VS as the the new guide gives it! Top end HVS 5a I thought as quite run out at the top. Certainly bolder than other two *** HVS's though admittedly less technical.

Maybe only a VS. There is only one awkward move getting into the final groove, which is well protected the rest of the way is on jugs. Awesome climb.

Only VS 4C when lead. (20 years ago) Just broken into VS leading, brilliant route. No cams, beta, gamma or alpha, just the guide book Climbing is dangerous if you fall off- Jkerran, u Muppet. Bombproof gear if you know how to place. Brilliant , brilliant route.

The crux is a long move if you're short, amazing finishing holds though.
