Start round to the right of the buttress up Yoyo until it becomes possible to traverse left onto the front face just above the overhang. Continue moving leftward and slightly upward to reach the staircase-shaped flake crack splitting the buttress and follow this to under the overhang.

Now all you have to do is squirm your way up the little hole at the back! Fun at first, but not once you get stuck...

The squeeze at the top is awkward, but not so bad once you have the right beta. Tried the direct start as well, but tired and a bit late in the day so it didn't go.

I think it is physically impossible for me to get through the hole. Had to stop trying as a dog was eating our lunch. With hindsight, I should have let it have the lunch, then I might have more hope next time!

Also known as Sloth Direct. start on the over hang tricky little pop with the hands to ease on to the head wall, then straight up the slab(ish) fount and wiggle your way though the hole at the top, moving chalk bang and any other kit to left hip helps ALOT

Sandstone, 2*. A popular and unusual trip. Start by stepping onto the right arete from Yoyo. Traverse left to the staircase of Inspiration and follow this to the roof. Move right untill beneath the crack of Juanita and squeeze up the body-sized hole at the back. Alternative starts include a hard pull over the overhang 2 metres left of the arete (5c) or the initial crack of inspiration (5b).

I adore this climb, bit of bridging, then onto the arete then a little traverse then a pull up to the hole then some 'caving' to finish. Who would have thought all that was possible within such a small space - Great!
