Paul led the chimney (made harder by having packs on our backs), then went up final 2 pitches of Cook's Tour with me leading.
themightyblues - AltLd O/S - 10/Sep/06 with Paul Derrick

Nice particularly if the chimney is taken direct, some guides suggest not including the second section on the chimney - do it it's a great bit of chimney. Very good value at Diff.
