100m. (Gandalf's Chimney) A more strenuous and awkward finish to Gandalf and easily combined with Lost Gandalf.</br>1) 5, 40m. As for Gandalf or Gollum (or use Lost Gandalf and traverse right if the other lines are busy).</br>2) 4, 20m. Climb up and left up a knobby slab about 5m left of the Gandalf's overhang. From a ledge, climb a corner on the left, then climb up to a grass ledge below an orange chimney. </br>3) 5-, 50m. Squeeze up through the chimney to an exit on large holds, then follow the awkward crack above to a sloping ledge on the right. Move up left and finish up Gollum.

It is more of a groove than a chimney and getting into it is a bit of a pig. Easier once established.

Just wondering if the rout is 5+, or just a 5 ?
