Approach via east bay, the obvious pea pod shaped groove. A route for chimney lovers, with a serious of unlikely contortions needed to make progress. Great fun.

finally! tried this again ut no joy, so Alex gave it a go and pulled some rather impressive climbing out of the bag! Cleared out the base and descent route.

overgrown at base but once established on route pleasant if not a bit dirty climbing. a few more ascents will sort it for the season. beware the loose blocks.

Lawrie Brand - 2nd O/S - 30/Jun/08 with Pete Hart

Very well-protected, tricky enough - a chimney-lover's route? Have to admit I quite enjoyed it :)

Great route with loads of contortions, manage to drop my only small cam which id saved for when it got desperate, fiddled in some other gear in the end. Take loads of wee cams if you can.
