Comments: "...According to the photo of the FA, the route doesn;t go up the chimney at the start, but instead climbs up the rib/arete right of the chimney, then traverses..."

Comments: Both Cater and Thompson guides rate Gemini LEFT (5.10c), and Gemini RIGHT (5.10a). Last I did these routes, I agreed with their ratings and thought LEFT was more difficult.
