Above - Grose Panorama

Above - Cliffs. We checked to the right, then we headed around the left

Above - Checking to the right did not look promising

Above - We scrambled a fair way round to the left - things did not look good. So we returned to the point and headed right again.

Above - I reached the bottom of this chimney. It was a possible way up?

Above - Bob checked above. It went!
