Ascent Trip Report

10h45m RT, breaks + summit included. Having foot problems so moving slowly - probably added an hour+.

Only one real pitch (bolt + chockstone pitch). Rest can be scrambled up and downclimbed.

60m rope stopped about 2 ft short of bolt on rap.

Most dangerous part of climb was at first pipe at narrowest part of chimney. Poor footing and handholds.
