Overhanging Chimney** HVD
[Overhanging Chimney., 2 kb]16m. The central chimney is a bit of a struggle. Easy climbing leads to the constricted central portion. This is most easily climbed facing left (or maybe right?) then things ease off. © ROCKFAX

Done as part of the 100 stanage stars ticklist. 43 routes in 15 hours. Absolutely exhausting, far too hot, and midge hell, but what an achievement! We had great fun. Well done Ben and thanks! The nut on this route lifted out, slid down the rope and hit ben in the balls. (It was a Wallnut 7). Classic.

Went into the chimney to place some gear and couldn't get out again. Enormous udge fest got me up. Just like the old days. A fine climb. So much effort for only a VDiff?
