From the boulder below the overhang, swing your feet into the break (honest) then shuffle round to the front face. A couple of moves of proper climbing are needed to reach the top. © Rockfax

charley 04/Oct/12 2nd O/S

Last climb (if you can call it climbing) of the day. Was getting dark and my hands and feet were numb. Took about 4 swings to get my feet to stick on the ledge. Was hanging by my legs and arms, upside-down for sometime trying to get some feeling back into my hands and at the same time laughing as it was just wrong, couldn't work out how I was on the rock, the moves shouldn't work but they just did. Easier then it looks and glad I decided to try it..

Interesting route, once inserted it was harder to stop my second laughing than to extricate.

Dave took one look at me lying on my back looking at Hathersage upside down and pissing myself laughing and decided not to follow. I abbed for the gear.

Quite a challenge at the time. Fully wedged myself in the slot. Since soloed often. Seems easy for HVS.
