Rockfax Description
The big chimney is well-named. Straightforward, if you like the style, apart from clipping the belay and stripping the gear. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Easy bridging up the leaning groove, with as many hands-off rests as you want. Awkward to strip.

Excellent 3D fun. The lower off krab could do with being replaced. Best to strip by having someone second this.

Really interesting 3D climb inside a funnel, then out at the top. Bolts are all in the right place and lots of rests, but aptly named. Lots of bridging needed.(Watch your head!)

Great fun! 5c+ in the book, further evidence that these continental bolt clipping types can't cope with chimneys. Carmen made it tricky by bridging all the way, I back-and-footed at about Severe. Then down-climbed most of it in order to get the quickdraws out!
