Took a while to get going, as I was trying to start too far inside and kept getting stuck when it narrows! Nice route, much better than Chockstone Chimney. Tricky for VDiff, so HVD probably fair, but certainly not S 4b.

I wish this route was longer! Placing gear felt a bit pointless, and more hassle than it was worth. Climbed out of the chimney into a heather bush, my seconder climbed this completely differently, which could be due to our height difference.

Followed Marissa up this, I found this route ok, did it quite different from Marissa think it may have been due to the height difference and the fact I wasn't on lead
