Route Grade Votings

8m. Climb the arete of Deep Chimney then move right to the hanging groove. Improving holds are used to reach a wide break and a much easier finish.
Good route which deserves more traffic. Without giving away the beta, you can protect the crux with a runner in the crack just left of the arete, but with a very long sling to an opposing nut low and right, which helps avoid horrendous rope drag later. Pocket takes an OK friend (I think I used a 1) and, although upper groove is easy, it's really scary unless you take some big friends (size 5 or 6, I guess, but I didn't!) for the wide upper breaks.
