DescriptionP1 (90' 5.7+) starts up the chimney which is often damp: either easier but not well-protected by bridging at the outside; or more technical back-and-footing but with good wire runners a few feet in. Move right and continue steeply up to a niche. P2 (90' 5.6) moves right and makes an exposed traverse, then up a good slab to a big ledge. Finish right of a block by pulling up a steep wall.
P1 (the chimney) is hard for the given grade, UK HS 4b, but many people avoid this by coming in from the right.
