10m. Inside the cave a juggy groove leads, via a bulge, to the first skylight. Often greasy and always gloomy. © ROCKFAX

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!

Hidden - Solo O/S - 01/May/09

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.
