The central chimney is a bit of a struggle. Easy climbing leads to the constricted central portion. This is most easily climbed facing left (or maybe right?) before things ease off.

a good climb through an impressive feature. Well protected. I did the chimney facing left (even though there are more holds facing right as it just felt better) and had a few good thrutchy grunt moves :) I think HVD sounds about right, mainly for entering the chimney proper.

No thrashing, thrutching or similar needed. A super route (whoever voted 'bag of' should take up needlework instead).

a good climb, try to position your body to the left when you get to the big crack in the middle
