linked the 2 pitches, not recommended. chimney really tricky but overall a good route.
scott gibson - Lead rpt - 16/Aug/14 with graeme read

Pretty hard start and a tricky game of balance for me, with a bit of rope pulling/resting but got through. Interesting crack at the start of 2nd belay and brilliant finish up the little pockets.

had seconded Ray Watkin in september 1967 on the route. Enjoyed it at the time but pitch 1 would worry me now. A ground fall is possible and the landing bad. Small nut part way up groove and another possibility as you ease out.
