SAKMC mass-ascent of the weekend. After a week of heavy rain it was very damp inside but still clean and great fun. Felt more like VDiff/Severe in the damp. Abbed off at the end of the chimney - top pitch didn't look worth it.

Led p1, p3 and p4. My partner graded this VD - very damp (done in the rain as required)! Didn't quite get the first pitch right - started up just to the right of the arch then scrambled almost horizontally right for some distance until reaching the base of the chimney. Hauling bags through the crack was good fun! Top pitch seemed pretty unprotected though...

adamre12 - Solo O/S - 21/Sep/14 with Dan Qureshi
Go through the arch, drop down walk along a narrow path to reach a short crack into the trees climb this it leads to another larger cracked wall. A large tree at the top of this crack marks the enterance to the chimney. Dont think I found these cracks last time!
Was very wet, much more of a fight than last time, partly because the second crack is tricky but mostly because the feet were slipping off everything on the chimney pitch. Done in 5 pitches and a walk along the middle cave section.
The sack was an error but glad of the shoes walking down the gully.

Weather was far too nice, but did do it at night in approach shoes in a 4! Very very very polished, soloed first 2 pitches, only used one big hex for crux pitch though is potential for couple of nuts. But once your in, lets face it your not coming back out. Rope soloed last pitch to stake, then climbed back down on belay at the abseil and clipped to the abseil ropes to avoid taking a fall onto the belayer.

Like nothing I've climbed before - I probably got the bum deal by going second and having to haul the rucksack(s) through the chimney - took forever. A few bit of it required not too much deep breathing and careful location of gear on the harness. Wished I'd had chalk and rockboots for the start, glad I didn't.

Superb! Soloed across the initial ledges then I led up the steep and polished little wall to the cave proper. This had Charles' name on it.....
Loads of fun, grunting and gurning but fortunately nice and dry. Getting on the first chockstone was the hardest due to the slippery wall. Popping out in the sunshine is a delight and back to my lead for the top wall/scramble. Only downside? The descent. The guidebook gives no clues so we headed down North Gully. Don't. Its a nightmare abseil in green wet moss, trees, overhanging blocks and sheep poo. Almost took longer than the climb........

Conditions bad driving rain at times and very slimy wet rock(in big boots)Climbed as part of AMC group of seven. Nice 3 metre air time for Sarah on leading the second pitch in front of us.(Ok though) Climbed as a three. Put the first two pitches together. Although the crux is not offically until the start of the chimmey by far the second pitch was the most problematic having to move left of the crack which take size 7 hex nicely. Chimmey fun with a good flakes for the final pitch. Credit to Dave for taking the first two pitches. One definately to do again but in good weather in rock boots
