Very hard move in the chimney for a severe. Traversed right at the top for finish.

We decided to warm up on this to see what was so harrowing about it, just as I started it began to very lightly rain - not a problem. Enjoyed the route placing a couple of sketchy cams and a very interesting finishing move. As Harry set off the heavens opened and we got fully drenched so abandonned ship and fled to the cafe for tea and scones!

first and last route of early morning start. I'm sure its an alright route when its dry, but stared climbing just as it stared tipping it down and the last move out off an off width was 'harrrowing'- guidebook got that right ! Retreated to outside

Pretty fun, though didn't get the "harrowing" experience on second. Tried the final mantle but it felt really hard to I bailed out right.

Decent route, bold but decent small cam in left wall of chimney helps.

very enjoyable, hard (for the grade) couple of first moves, then very steady. not really harrowing at any point as guidebook suggests.

topped out between the 'paps' on Cioch Crack by mistake. Thought it was a bit stiff for a S 4a...

Unless you have a size 10 friend, this route has no gear apart from a small wire near the bottom. Still, its quite good fun though.
