Actually climbed the centre of the face after fettling the chockstone bit. A top rope is a wonderful thing!

Cold and damp. Used the big block in the chimney. Would be much tougher without - too tough for numb fingers and damp rock.

Avoided the crux using the chimney. Even this way, it was a (rather good) VS 4c, if you avoid the chimney as suggested by the guidebook it must surely be HVS 5a (hard climbing with gear some way below your feet).
