A classic of its type. Don't wear a helmet, or you won't be able to look up, and so will have to climb by feel like I did :-)

Definitely worth doing. You get more and more squeezed as you work your way up the chimney, then there's a good foothold to extricate yourself for the quite exposed finish. Potholing is required to place any protection.
