Deep Cut Chimney

Usually on the good weather climbing days the climber finds them self stuck in the office or in my case college. I believe however I have found the perfect solution for this, don't go to the office.
So instead of going to college Jamie Bankhead and I headed to Hells Lum crag in the Cairngorms to climb Deep Cut Chimney (IV,5***). The avalanche forecast made the crag a popular choice for the day and we were beaten to the route by another team but fortunately beat the other parties.
The first and last pitch is were this route earns its stars and the crux is the very last move, which is spectacularly weird.
