Followed Marissa up this green bird shit stained route. No real hand holds really just wedged myself in and slid up using my back, very graceful.
Enjoyed the airy top out, had to climb without a helmet as you wouldn't fit through gap at top otherwise.
jennifers87 - 2nd O/S - 06/Sep/12 with Marissa Earnshaw
Not a massive fan of gritstone chimneys. Probably climbed the chimney too high because it was awkward to come into the "exposed outside exit" described in Rockfax. My head kept getting stuck so I had to ditch my helmet before topping out. Great last move.

apparently an almscliff classic, it was certainly memorable when dripping wet and covered in slimy pigeon droppings. "I'm pooped" has never been meant more literally.
