[White Ghyll chimney, 2 kb]3 pitches. Climb corner to chimney and belay from flake by small tree; move through chimney as it narrows to a crack and then traverse left via diagonal groove to belay ledge (VS 4b variation - avoid chimney by tackling left face to gain diagonal; move right along ledge 3m and then up for 5m.
