Absolute belter this little climb. Enjoyed it more than the Gillecombe Buttress Classic rock route. Cave pitch is a classic: draw lots for who takes the rucksack!

Absolutely desperate struggle through the slot with a rucksack full of ropes and gear, as we had gone up intending to climb other routes and climbed this Alpine style.

Ian Archer - AltLd - 14/Jun/00 with Alan Hardie

Cold wet day - we took the 'not suitable for stout persons' advice as provocation and posted ourselves through the 'letter box' regardless. Impossible to fall off, but very difficult to move upwards except by a combination of heavy breathing and caterpillar-like contractions. Memorable.
