Ian Miller - Lead - 10/Nov/12 with Ben Darby

An enjoyable solo, even for a waifer like me. I think we can squeeze a few more people in next time.
Dan1898 - Solo O/S - 25/Oct/12 with Mark Booker

Horrendous "climb" although strangely good fun despite many bruises

Not so much "did not finish" as "could not start". Looks a great tunnel but no amount of breathing in and wriggling was going to gain me progress...

Intresting climb, quite awkward
Filthy - Lead - 28/May/10

Sweet. The squeeze is pretty tight for non-waifs like me, but do-able after a bit of wiggling and well-timed breathing out!

Horrible little thing, would have been a nice solo but I couldn't squeeze in that gap, it hurt and i got stuck in very strange positions, so gave up, ben soloed to the point i got to and confirmed that it was indeed awful.
