Really hard work at the first and second crux though this was just out of my own ability level and after several rests. However very satisfying once reaching the top. Took a right straight up and then crossed over to go up on the left VS.

Really quite sustained. Expected the route to merge with the Diff at the top and ease, don't think it does! Some rather exciting bridging to the exit hole

Terrible, started to get dark, making the top very dark. Heavy use of anti-gravity/assisted dyno.

This is ascended first via thrutchy laybacking, which is followed by thrutchy chimneying before some thrutchy bridging and a final thrutch through the manhole at the top. Great fun; I’d recommend it to any VS leader! =D
