Awkward start getting into the chimney and moving round onto the outside of the flake

Started raining whilst I was in the groove so by the time I got to the ledge the slopers were completely useless and had to lower off

pretty hard 'severe' took three attempts to get established in the chimney, lots of huffing and puffing to get out.

Loved this. Ridiculous fun full body climbing, with a quick crash course in jamming just before entering the chimney.

Great route. Grade is hilarious but one look at the route tells you all you need to know.

Hardest severe we've ever done. I had two goes at the start moves, Frazer cracked them after four. went on to much the easier : The Scoop, Handrail and Hissing Sid (well maybe H. Sid was a touch harder.

Not severe, very awkward

Tried and failed to start repeatedly, so did Alb. The Capt succeeded but had to breathe in!
