Rockfax Description
Low in the grade. From halfway up Swimmer's Chimney squirm rightwards past the arete and climb the wall by a hard move, things then ease. A bouldery direct start up right side of the lower arete is Better Dead Than Smeg, E6 6c. © Rockfax

βeta: Getting onto the face definitely didn't feel like the crux to me. It was the few moves after that with a semi-mantleshelf that provided the entertainment. Get good gear in quick and then be ready for a long reach. A romp from there on. A really enjoyable climb and worth 3 stars I reckon for its variety.

βeta: Getting on to the face is by far the hardest part. From the large jammed block in the chimney, you can arrange good gear in the arete, which is above the crux moves onto the face (and makes it E1 perhaps?)

martinbettridge06 25 May Lead O/S The route description in the BMC guide is more accurate. After placing gear above the chockstone in the chimney, you move down and right onto the face, traverse rightwards until feet on the lowest part of the face . At least 1.5-2m away from the arete, contrary to the line depicted in the guide. Solid 5c move upwards from here. Gaining the face from halfway up the chimney as per the rockfax description is probably only HVS.

kermit_uk 29 Oct, 2017 Lead G/U Made the moves down and out right. Felt hard and couldn't recover enough on the face. Lowered off, pulled ropes and went back up. Got the move round the arete really wrong and it felt desperate. Managed to pull it together though. Great climbing, safe but tough. Definitely would be a lot easier to go right higher up with feet level with gear on the arete. I think maybe the route should go right from the chockstone then would avoid the down climbing and still be pretty well protected.

Mike505 19 Jul, 2015 Lead dog Got it wrong (and clean) on my first attempt, I exited the chimney with my feet where my hands should have been - maybe only HVS if done like this? Realizing this I attempted it again at the end of the day with the hand traverse onto the face and pumped out on the crux move. That move is probably easier for the short and people with more strength than me!

Looking at the comments below I think some people are missing out the hardest section of this route, the UKC description is wrong, you dont go halfway up Swimmers Chimney. Climb 3m up the chimney then move down and right onto the face, so when you move onto the face your feet will be only just above the very bottom of the face with your hands in the very lowest break. The hardest moves are getting onto the face and getting from the first break to the second break, the gear is good throughout.

Reaver2k 4 Jul, 2009 2nd O/S Hard! Start up the awkward chimney, then drop down out right by some really tricky moves and relatively poor protection. Sort of got my left hand on the arete, and bridged and reached round with my right hand to the poor break, then swung my right foot round onto a small hold and keep moving right, then use crimps to get yourself established on the top wall. Really really nice moves, possibly worth 3 stars if it didn't feel unnatural to break off from the chimney.

bigphil 18 Apr, 2009 Lead dog Dropped down too low into the E5 and got pumped stupid. After a sit on the rope made it back to the chimney and then completed. Does being off route in a big way count as a dog?
