20m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
1) 10m. The rather green recessed groove leads without incident to the mid-height terrace and a stance.
2) 10m. The narrow chimney just above is awkward to enter due to its undercut base but then soon eases.
Malc's Flaky Finish - takes the flying flake left of the chimney and has some wild moves at E2 5c. © Rockfax

The chimney was a thrutch.

I lead the cleft and David lead the chimney (surprisingly pumpy and very awkward).

Climbed Great Slab Chimney in place of P1 as this was green, wet and particularly slimy.

Lovely sunny day, warm, touch of wind. Perfect conditions. Cleft was green but dry, protection was very good. Lead first pitch, but tried to lead second pitch to no avail. Defeated by the entrance to the chimney. I blame my fat arse, and lack of skill, and strength, and the position of the moon. Tried variation route going up the right hand side of the flake but just couldn't do it. Gave up, downclimbed and belayed Andy up so he could have a crack. He also tried the variation, but didn't make a pigs ear of it. On second, it was extremely easy. No idea why I couldn't do it before.
