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

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.
