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.
