Brian forgot to mention that the name of the route does indeed imply that the whole route is covered in pigeon shit. Never gotten so dirty on a climb before.
With the amount of sand that's falling from rope movement over your head, the amount of pidgeon crap that you're kicking off the rock, and the occasional updrafts going through the tunnel, you will get more than your daily oral intake of both sand and pigeon shit.
It's a long chimney though, so it does have that going for it!

|This climb looked pretty cool, but it is so dirty we decided it wasn't worth doing. The pidgeons definately own this one!|

|yeah.... i got covered in falling pigeon shit just from belaying this route. in theory this routes cool, until you actually start to climb it. the pigeons definitely took this over.|

|Fantastic warm up if you don't mind getting dirty on the climb. Don't forget your helmet and sunglasses though!|
