One HELL of a fun route! Easy until the ledge, the vertical caving practice was a bugger. The sun was up when I went in, and had set by the time I topped out. Real issue with rope drag through the squeeze. Funniest route imaginable, especially for belayers with the noises made by climbers!

Awesome fun route, Tom lead placing gear every metre or so, including inside the lower tunnel, had to much rope drag so set up belay. I joined him and lead through the top tunnel complete with gear and trying to place it. Got horribly stuck so had to remove helmet and gear while stuck in tunnel, then finally could proceed to finish. Most fun all day :)

Utterly rediculous, completely deviant, and not a little foul. Did some mud swimming through the first tunnel, but gave up on the second after scraping out on my first attempt (that and my second wasn't exactly looking happy about the route anymore, not that I blamed him).
