Rockfax Description
12m. Start up the chimney then shuffle round the first arete and cross the face to the second one. Up this - great positions - to a finish on the right. © Rockfax

Felt a little bolder than I was expecting. I really enjoyed the great positions on the arete and top out - can't say the same for my graceless shuffle up the chimney.

Hmm not my finest ascent... got my bum wedged in the initial chimney, then somehow ended up with my back to the rock trying to get round the large chockstone. Once i finally got out of there, had a right old panic trying to traverse the ledge (should i have traversed lower maybe?). Final bit was ok but i had so much adrenaline going i fluffed it and had to rest, then took an age to summon the courage to ascend the final top out move. I hereby change the name of the route to Bas**rd.

No memory of doing this before, so claiming the onsight. The second half and top-out felt very bold. At least HS.

Tricky udging the initial chimney then ended up hugging the flake as difficult to start the traverse. Top arete was lovely in comparison.
