Rockfax Description
The narrow hanging fissure is accessed via a steep crack. Take a rest before the chimney then struggle up it to a dirty but well-protected exit. © Rockfax

βeta: Some excellent moves up the chimney but not well protected exit if you don't have any big wires or cams left, a size 2 cam or a big nut will do. Watch out for the top it's mostly loose and when your last runner is in the chimney itself that makes for a scarier exit, a nicely sustained route worth at least 2 stars.
