Double ropes essential, good rope practice, nice moves up the chimney, poor gear on the slab.

Really needs double ropes as the rope drag is phenominal going up the chimney. Tried to alleviate it by taking a long runner from the crack just right of the chimney to stop the rope rubbing on the rock. Absolutely loved the way the chock stone edges you out of the chimney to make it slightly airy.
