Devious but worthwhile - double ropes are sensible and may even be essential! Climb the ramp then traverse round the arete to access the upper section of Chequers Crack (p.401 ).
Don't discount this route as contrived - it really is great fun, but it certainly does need double ropes. It manages to avoid the cruxes of Chequers Buttress and Chequers Crack, but there is plenty of fine climbing left, and the exposed traverse is not to be missed!
Good climbing but if any runners are placed in the traverse across chequers buttress, the rope tends to jam impeding further progress up the final crack.
