Wet, greasy and with liberal amounts of lubricating guano. A great experience and worth the 3 stars. Good, but not clean, fun!

About E1 4b in our conditions! The wet and grease made this an ultimate adventure. Nearly getting smashed by waves on the traverse in and the uncertainty of the line mixed with relentless birdshit and wetness made us both grin and tremble the whole way. Palava getting Andy to the top ! ~Most memorable route I've done. Clearly didn't learn our lesson buzzing to do Benny later on!

As expected: cold, dark and covered in Sh*t!! WHAT a climb though. A real adventure and I loved every second of it. I left a no 3 cam in the roof too as my second couldn't get her out. If you can it all yours ;-)
Oh yeah...I disturbed a pigeon close to the exit of the blow hole and screamed like a girl as it flapped in my face!!!
