Very traditional, closer to S than the VD given in the guide. Much better than Right Twin Chimney :)

Jo did the first route of that week-end, nice. I was quite intimidated, back to stanage and all that.

What a finish. Don't get to high in the roof crack or you'll get your helmet stuck. Oooh err missus ! Great jams in the horizontal break take the sting out of the finish.

Stuck to the crack at the start .. nice technical little move with my feet. Then up into the cave area. Big holds once found make it easy to move up to and below the big crack to the top. Tried to stay out of the crack at the top but a certain amount of body jamming did, unfortunately, take place
