Brilliant route! Hilarious, entertaining and memorable. Possibly the highlight of the weekend! The climbing is straight forward but interesting, it becomes much easier one you work out you can back and foot most of it in the wider part of the chimney instead of getting trappred in the corner. The higher up you get, the less likely it looks that there is actually a way out as ouy only see a few pin-pricks of light. I keept thinking to me self 'I hope there is a actually way out of this' and was wondering if I should have switched to the obvious manhole to the left. Even when I got to the exit, I wasn't sure actually be able to get through until i tried but bid of squirming did the job. Didn't bother setting up an anchor at the top as there was no way i would get pulled back through the hole. Seeing my seccond's reaction to the exit and his attempts to squirm through were thoroughly entertaining and had me in stitches!

Experienced some serious route-finding issues. I followed the 'obvious' Diff line up the right hand side, only to back out near the top as I was concerned the gap at the top looked REALLY small and that I might need to head left. Downclimbed back to near the start and went left, only to find what I'm sure is a VS 4c-ish move over a bulge on slopey holds with no feet (and there is a VS in that corner). Fairly confused. I assume I should have continued up and to the right and squeezed through the gap. But if this is the case then the Rockfax topo is pretty poorly drawn. I'll return with some decent beta and crush this next time.

An aperitif for Sifta's Quid. Hilarious, have never laughed so much on a climb. Was after a prolonged period of dry weather which I think helped!
Bobling - 2nd - 04/Jun/11 with Spiderman

A pleasant cool route to get out of the blazing sunshine until I reached the roof. Felt claustrophobic under the boulder roof and asked a climber on top which hole was largest exit. He thought second on left looked bigger. In the small space available I manoeuvered myself sideways and horizontally into the tiny hole. I became wedged and struggled to move remaining gear on my harness out of the way. With an almighty roar I forced myself through the rest of the hole. The relief was immense! It was only when my second came up that I found I hard chosen the wrong exit, it should be the furthest one on the left. I'm never doing a cave climb again!

Don't make the mistake of following the righht hand corner. The exit hole is tiny and the traverse across the slab to the proper exit is commiting.

A good laugh! Found squirming through the top utterly desperate yet exhilirating at the same time :p A minor classic.

Enjoyable and hilarious route, just don't try to come out the hole at the top at the wrong angle or your shoulders won't fit!
