difficult start for a vdiff but once on the slopey ledge it is an easy vdiff to the top. stepped across to the flake from the ledge, unsure if this is route rather than direct up the crack but direct route looked well beyond a vdiff

Didn't like the look of the start of the chimney, so climbed the pillar then did a big step across onto the flake and went up that before bridging into the chimney. Slightly awkward! If I'd realised there was a Severe variant coming up to the flake from the right I would have done that instead. Probably climbed most of that line anyway.

Was meant to be following up "the digit counter falls - HVS" but the only gear and therefore rope was so far right that I was gunna take a big swing into another wall so moved left to the next route, North corner, to get up. Disappointed couldn't second HVS again.
