Not as excellent as first hand folklore on the subject climb as could be provided by Chockys own bro Eduardo.
Failing that youd have to also respect sister Wendys opinion, or for that matter bro rightarmbad since hes a local.

Id go Wendys advice or get in contact with Phil Box on Facebook. Im surprised shes not out there as she is usually up here around this time. The first time I climbed it was was second to Phil Box. He placed enough gear to get into the chimney then climd the whole chimney with no gear. Another piece as you exit then the anchors. I was stunned by his boldness. If you contact him he would probably come out and help you for the fun of it :-)

What is it you wish to know?
It's unique, airy and a bit hard to protect until you get in the chimney, best to get in a little higher as it is cramped at the very bottom.
Rack on your right side or use a sling.
Unless you fall asleep it's a bit hard to fall off once inside.
A couple of big pieces come in handy at the start.
Take two ropes to get down from Infinity's anchors.

I climbed it with my partner and she has a horrendous time on it both loving it and hating it. I remember that article from a few years back and would love to show it to her.

Beta is not actually required.

Now that you have our attention, please post the article here for those of us that know nothing about it and are dreaming of warmer climbs.

I'll attempt to do so when I'm back in civilisation

For those who's interest has been peaked, the article can be found here.

Id forgotten that article.
Thanks for the refresher, as it looks like a great climb and is now on my to do list next time I visit Frog.

The article photos looked to be great results for difficult photography conditions too*, as they certainly convey what the climb involves.
(*Well done Phil Box).
