Got into the chimney reasonably well, then got wedged in the damn thing at the bottom. As per guidebook instructions, lots of swearing ensued.

Very Awkward move into the chimney that took a few attempts to find. Once in the climb is simple and really fun. My first outdoor chimney and in the rain.
Ragingpossum - 2nd dog - 05/Nov/11
My first grit climb. The weather was rainy, but I removed jacket so it wouldn't get ruined, then sat on the top belay in the rain for an hour or so and got a cold. Certainly an interesting move getting into the chimney...

Happy to get this after a failed attempt many moons ago. Good climbing if you like wide cracks - strangely rewarding ;)
VS 4c I reckon (4c for the moves getting established in to the chimney and moving up the initial section). Well protected, atleast as hard as jonathans chimney IMO.

Couldn't get comfortable in the first chimney. Some good gear in there but did not have the guts to jam myself in at 7am and with an overwelming urge to wazz mi sen. A strong coffee is in order before my next attempt.

Just after a light shower - difficult to get established in the slimy chimney, put some significant dents in my helmet as squeezed in, gazed at the muddy final moves and bewildered by the less than easy to build belay. Never again!

Backed off. Spent a long time trying to get into first chimney. Chockstones were wet and slimey.
Backed off so that second wouldn't be climbing in the dark. Will come back another day.

Good route for my Gritstone apprenticeship! Not a thrutch if figure out the moves and put some trust in friction. Managed to cam my knees and feet in to do the chimney.
