Rockfax Description
Start as for Queen's Parlour Gully (or more direct - a grubby 4b ) and slant right - more big chipped holds - to a possible stance below the chimney. Climb to a recess then take the awkward through-route. Sneak off left or, alternatively, finish up the hard and polished crack springing from the recess - more like 4c. © Rockfax

The chimney bit was fun although shorter and easier the expected and somewhat spoiled by the smell of piss.

Led by Scott after all three of us failed to commit to Queens Parlour Chimney! A really fun route- not much point placing gear once inside the chimney.

Intended to tackle Queens Parlour but had a case of the nerves and carried on with this one.

Rope snagged on cave. Belayed from nr top, rather than very top.

Easy solo, don't think its worthy of a HVD.

This was Rueben’s 'good idea' for the day, absolutely hated it at the time and got very wedged in the chimney. Oddly I'm looking forward to doing it again, it's a proper adventure!

Not climbed esp lead outside for a while. Good chimney route to get back into it, esp solid belay point.

This is more like Mod (apart from the avoidable, polished 4c crack at the top)! A fantastic route nonetheless and ideal solo.
