good fun! Didn't do all 8, but head first feet first, both ways. Much fun!
dsgarner - Solo O/S - 15/Mar/14

Did all the variations - great fun, comical & a good workout as well....
charley - Solo O/S - 11/Jan/14

Met Chris and he kindly guided us up the route in all 8 variations! absolutely brilliant, tiring strenuous and fun!
The Norris - 15/Apr/13 with Gem

fun way to spend the time when you want something a bit different. The feet-first descent variants involve a bit of tricksy manoeuvring.
adam carless - Solo - Sep/12

I used muscles I didn't know I had - and they hurt the next morning.
