Rockfax Description
The deep, narrowing chimney is hard work but quite safe despite the rattling chockstone - try not to get stuck in it. © Rockfax

There seems to be no chockstone any more, unless we're being stupid? It seems far harder as a result.

Failed to lead this, downclimbed. I wanted more gear for the step up to the wobbly chockstone. Fine after that bit.
