First aid climb. Being a roof found it very strenuous, and at points whilst doing the leading and cleaning it felt hard.
On lead there are few big steps and pulls, and a fairly technical rope crux.
I really ache now! fifth - Lead O/S - 04/May/14 with Dave
Finally we completed the challenge of doing the route in the dark after work. 6.5 hours finishing at 4am to celebrate with a bottle of very cold ale on the floor of the cave!now its done I won't be rushing back!

Yes, didn't enjoy it quite as much at the time due to difficulties with releasing tension from one sling to the other when traversing, but in retrospect it was good fun and a fine adventure for a rainy day. Won't be repeating the route any time soon though...

Good banter. Gear is sound as you like, none of the bolts blew! Best served with a Bombay Bad Boy Pot noodle!

First aid climb, found it pretty physical although it got easier as I got going. The other pair finished at 11pm!
Jonathan Hall - Lead - 11/Jun/11 with Jane Rigby
This Aid climbing malarky is knackering. It took us hours and we finally finished in the dark at 11pm. Interesting experience to say the least.

ACE :D Though bit of a epic to say the least, getting lost mid roof and then reverse aiding back to do the exact correct line in the centre of the roof and then finishing way after dark, but a good experience on a wet day!

Got to the first ab point and bailed - my abs were pumped! Great fun on a wet day, hilarious random guys turned up, skinned up and played tuns in. Boney M, The Specials and The Doors....

Not A1 in 1985!
At least A3 because of the poor condition of the gear.
