Rockfax Description
Low in the grade. From halfway up Swimmer's Chimney squirm rightwards past the arete and climb the wall by a hard move, things then ease. A bouldery direct start up right side of the lower arete is Better Dead Than Smeg, E6 6c. © Rockfax

βeta: A brilliant climb. Very well protected and with a nice mantelshelf after attaining the face.

βeta: Getting onto the face definitely didn't feel like the crux to me. It was the few moves after that with a semi-mantleshelf that provided the entertainment. Get good gear in quick and then be ready for a long reach. A romp from there on. A really enjoyable climb and worth 3 stars I reckon for its variety.

βeta: Getting on to the face is by far the hardest part. From the large jammed block in the chimney, you can arrange good gear in the arete, which is above the crux moves onto the face (and makes it E1 perhaps?)

βeta: Bit of traditional back and footing to get you started,strange bouldery moves around onto the face, then lovely long moves up the face - classic and varied - very well protected - more like E1 5c
