Ears Between, III, 5.7
5th Pitch- 45m- 5.7/ By far the fun/crux pitch of the route. Start up easy moves in the chimney and then it gets a little sparse. Walk your #4 up in a crack on the right as you dissect the middle of the chimney and move out of it left just for a second, then back in on an awkward runnel of sorts. Hump over this section to easier ground again with a small ledge to the right (30m) and continue up steep ground with positive holds and a few good nut placements later, top out on a col between the ears!

in simple terms we call this a chimney pitch, you move in and out of it, placing gear on either side as you ascend. We use dihedral, but not dihedron (diedre) in climbing slang. Cheers.

"Dièdre" is the French word for it.

I guess Dièdre is Dihedral and Chimney sounds like "Cheminée". We would need to climb together to find out ! :o)
