8m. The dark fissure cuts deep behind the buttress, severing it from the hillside behind. Get stuck into this one for maximum pleasure. A 'classic' of its genre if you know what I mean! © ROCKFAX

excellent fun, upward progress is far harder than back down, but get stuck in there and runners will be found.

by far the hardest route of the day, more like caving than climbing, I ended up with bruised chest and shoulder blades.

Are you supposed to climb at the front or right at the back of the chimney? I went for the later, using the deep crack at the back on the right to wriggle and struggle up the chimney (good practise for knee and arm bars etc), before reaching the top. Which i found blocked, so ended up dangling from the break, swing left, then jumping back onto the ledge of 'DEEP CRACK' behind me.
