A nice varied route that covers some of the same ground as Coley Smoke but via a more direct version. Start at a large finger-shaped boulder at ground level, below a scooped boulder with three grooves in its top half.<br/>1) N5, 25m. Climb the centre of the scoop and exit via the middle one of the three grooves. Continue up easy slabs to a spike belay below the main crack.<br/>2) N5, 30m. Climb steeply up the jagged crack then, when the angle eases, step right into a left-slanting groove. Head up this as it steepens into a blind layback crack then, where this ends, step right and belay a little higher below some loose blocks.<br/>3) N5+, 40m. Move left for 5m over the loose blocks (care needed) to gain the main corner. Follow this past a roof to where it steepens. Pass the steepening with difficulty then belay in the base of the chimney above.<br/>4) N5-, 30m. Climb the chimney past the jammed boulder and follow the groove until the delightful finger-crack in the slab to the left can be reached. Shared with Coley Smoke.
