Variation on route 27 in Scrambles in the Dark Peak. The large block that forms much of the left wall of the chimney near the top is now extremely loose - beware!

βeta: Ascended yesterday to an almost disastrous removal of the large block warned about in the description. The upper section may now be easier or harder due to the large block now resting in a solid position in the middle of the crux. An absolute arse tickler, glad we were using gear as the block fell off with my mate on it, the top rope pulling him into the wall as the block fell away. We estimate the block to weigh around 500-700kg and landed only a few inches from my mates falling position. There is a blue number 14 nut and a wire gate quickdraw laying there for anyone who fancies braving the route
