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.

was a midgies dick away from falling out the bottom of the groove and down the death blocks below- the first peice blew when I yarded on it to test it and sent me off balance, only just managed to teeter back in to the land of the living!

Highlight of the day was definitely watching Joe squirm up the route facing outwards on the lead. Looked like equal parts ecstasy and misery... but so much 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.

downclimbed from this one yet again, one day I will get it. Think I know what I have to do, just got to man up and do it now!

I will be back with SMALL cams - c3's or similar are needed low down, nuts just wont cut it.

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.
