The approach was a pain - no snow, just ball bearing scree. It's a fourth-class scramble to the chimney. From there, there is some good, some bad rock. Wear helmets. The chimney could be done in one 50m pitch, but we took two shorter pitches, which worked well. The rope hung up on the rappel, so I got to do the climb twice. The first time I stayed in the chimney all the way, the second I avoided the "crux" by working out on the face - that's cleaner and protects well.

This was a nice climb, but didn't live up to its billing as a "classic". Sorry.
