Led 2 pitches from the Crevasse at top of Jones's Route to Low man. Tricky to get into chimney as guidebook says, but straightforward thereafter. Got some rope drag. Helen led the final pitch across the arete.

Classic traditional Chimney, which requires traditional techniques and can easily thwart a technical climber, it's not a thrutch mind. Absolutely loved it, one of the highlights of a dry week's climbing in the Lakes
