3 pitches.

SMC Description
40m. The right-facing corner just left of Jacob's Ladder is well protected but strenuous at the start and quite thin higher up without ice. Often climbed as a single pitch, abseiling from a spike at the top of the corner (the normal belay is after pulling out left). Going up left leads to The Slant (II) and Hidden Chimney (III) itself, whilst continuing above is Just a Spot o' Sightseeing (IV). © SMC

Me P1, Lewis P3, walked across P2. Quite pokey without any helpful neve on P1 - hooky, teetery slabs. Yikes. Top pitch going about II,4. All sorts of weirdness but solid gear.

We climbed the alternative direct start as there was a team on the 'normal' direct.

Lean conditions, but the direct start relies upon hooks and torks anyway, a bit harder than it looks from the ground, excellent climbing though!!

Good 1st pitch- not a soft touch. Finished up the slant due to the chimney being jam packed as per usual.

Well good route and my first proper mixed, no ice to speak of but great hocking/torquing all the way and the odd sketchy mantel. Build up was starting on the chimney, tho we went under the choke stone, lol. Great fun.

tasty mixed first pitch then good chimney finish, loved the under-chockstone funky backwards hook :-)
