Rockfax Description
14m. The tall rift just left of the fence is a long standing classic. Sustained and a little awkward, but well protected. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
12 metres. The obvious square cut chimney immediately left of the boundary wall/fence.

Jonno30 10/Nov/17 2nd O/S

Great little climb with a few awkward moves at the end getting around the boulder.

Pevans 09/Nov/17 Lead

Not a VD. Was tempted to escape right up the HS route as it looked easier, but pressed (literally) on.

Lead first 2/3 on Thai's pre-placed gear. Top part was scary in the wet and didn't really enjoy any of it... more chimney practise required!

excellent route, but so green that I was nervous on the solo.concentrating on keeping the foot placements very precise.

You get exactly what you expect - a chimney. Good fun and well protected, although I did move one cam most of the way up with me.

I reckon it is harder than VD, but I did it in walking boots in the damp, which probably made it feel harder than it was.
