Rockfax Description
The imposing chimney is climbed on (very) polished holds to reach the balcony and a stance. Often green. Escape right across the top of the chimney or, better, finish through the overhang above the ledge by a couple of weird moves on jugs; S 4b. © Rockfax

FA. Fred Piggott et al early 1920s
