Chimp** VS 4b
25m. The optional belay is best to avoid rope drag, alternatively climb the start of Breathless to the ledge (known as 'Asthmatic Chimp' HVS 5b) or simply abseil into the ledge on a high neap tide.

Great upper corner but a lot of faff belaying on the ledge (there was a very inconvenient puddle just where I wanted to stack the ropes). If climbing on half ropes, it would be better to do in one pitch. Harder than 4b.

Did it as a multipitch which was mass faff though on a nice big ledge, happy to go second as martin cleared millions of bugs off the route

Upper line is great - shame about the traversy start and rather cramped belay
