Couldn't agree more.
I think it was late March/early April when we did it and 2-3L of water was plenty. I'd hate to lug any more weight than that for the day.

Slightly off topic, the ACA guide says about the pitch 8/9 variant, "Apparently some people head straight up the chimney, but it looks bloody desperate!" Has anyone got any thoughts on grades for this? It felt at least a couple harder than the rest of the climb, but allows you to skip the really shitty belay.
