Good well protected climbing, though nothing special. No belly flop needed if you look around!

Yes it's just a chimney full of dirty chockstones but go up in big boots and find moves way ahead of their time.

Minimally protected, wasn't really my cup of tea, especially the narrow mantle over the chockstone at the top. Managed to slide over it on my belly, certainly not graceful

Nice mantle to top out onto the chockstone.
