Continued straight up after first pitch to the base of another chimney which involved bridging over a short awkward corner then back and footing up toward and over a chockstone..excellent pitch!

With my host, David Sykes, BMC Winter Meet 2014. Fantastic first pitch, cracks were filled with ice, it was difficult to place decent gear, used ice-screws and a Spectre.

Good route, pitch 2 was a lot easier than 1 and 3. Shame it wasn't a bit more sustained.
