Hidden - 2014

smooth and slimey in places. neil led 2nd pitch which was quite awkward - all well protected though.
Tanya Savage - AltLd - 02/Jun/13 with Neil Pacey

Definitely traditional, surprised to find it so damp after such dry weather. Could be a horror in the wet. Good route but not three stars.
