Phew, with the wet rock from the rain coming in and the dirty polished holds this felt harder than the given grade. Good fun though and at least we got to climb whilst the rest of the crag was soaking.

Either a heroic struggle of Orphean proportions or an unpleasant squeeze through the bowels of the earth. Either way you emerge blinking into the light much relieved and covered in bat guano.

Gear found at entrance in a small black bag. call 07833096855 After looking at an old logbook describing it as vd I thought I'd give it a go. Wouldn't Recommend! Especially if your big. Its a very dirty, greasy awkward climb up which I had to repeat on top rope. Look out for holds on the left hand wall away from the gear and ledge that is hard to mount.

Grotty and greasy, just when you think it'll ease it doesn't. Thought I'd blown this a couple times but managed to get up it! Horrid finish too - ended up jammed in crack with feet over my head. Never again!

Have to admit once half way up I did start wondering if I had any mobile signal or whether anyone in the factory would hear me if I shouted loud enough. Damp, greasy, glossy, muddy and desperate but managed to fight my way out. Climb it just for the feeling of elation once you escape.
