Rockfax Description
If chimneys and chockstones are your thing, then this is the route to head for. The pitches are long but can be split if required. The climb becomes far harder in the wet.
1) 32m. Scramble up to enter the steep chimney and ascend it past chockstones to belay where it ends.
2) 10m. Walk up to where the chimney starts again.
3) 35m. The chimney passing large chockstones and a small cave - atmospheric. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A classic of its kind! The obvious steep, green chimney at the bottom of Jack's Rake is gained by a short scramble. Thrutch to the top in two or three more pitches.
