28m.

Rockfax Description
28m. Another great route - sustained and high in the grade. Head up the steep bulging crack left of the arete on jams to a ledge, then continue by more jamming (possible stance on The Pulpit). Step back down, traverse left to the bulging crack and storm this by more glorious jamming. © Rockfax

FA. (pitch 2) Joe Brown 1952. Before this it finished up Great Chimney..

βeta: Oh yeah, watch out for rope drag if you do the original variation. I almost got pulled off out of the chimney.

βeta: Awesome climbing. Did it about a year ago. Lead it with a "solid" VS/HVS second who promptly fell off the start. Then watched a "solid" E1 leader pull on gear at the start. Ha ha... it's all about technique.

βeta: Great jams at the start which is just as well as you need to haul on them to get up the first bit. Rest of route is a little easier and it's all very pleasant.
