Chimney, 5.6.

Description 

Start on the leftmost flake of the south end of main wall noted by a streak of moss which currently has a little man carved in it. Smear up the slab to the second horizontal crack and follow it to the base of the chimney. The chimney is kind of awkward till the halfway point, this is probably the crux of the whole route.

Location 

Start on the far left of the south end main wall. If you're looking straight up the rock and Stone Hedge's left face is on your left, you're in the right spot.

Protection 

#1 BD Camalot and below on the first half. The chimney will take up to a number 4 and as low as a number 2 BD.

Chris, if I remember correctly, the lower part of the "chimney" will take a #9, purple hex, but hey who would have one of those?
