The Drain* VS 4b
25m. An adventurous pitch, which is quite intimidating for the grade. Start 5 metres right of Strappados, at a peg and nut belay. Step right from the belay and climb a crack back leftwards and up past a tree stump (runner) to a break under an impressive chimney. Enter the chimney using a crack and jugs on the right (giant crusty thread deep in chimney). Pull over a bulge, and climb a crack, thread, until a difficult move must be made to exit to ledges. Giant thread belay with cable strop. Abseil off.

A VS that I haven't climbed at avon?! Brilliant climbing with an adventurous feel. That chimney is cool. Well worth a star.
