The name and appearance means the chasm at the back of the gully gets few ascents, but don’t be put off – the big chimney is still a great adventure climb, originally entered by traversing in from the L along ledge above Philanderer. Classic chimney and up headwall to the top of the pinnacle. The descent became tricky after a huge tree fell from the top of Main Cliff in 1977 smashing and destroying what was previously easy. In 1973 Murray Jones led the whole chimney by climbing up the outside (very impressive to watch and second) and graded it HVS/5.8.
