UKC Logbook Description
Horrible dirty chimney where you are meant to fit through a gap in the top of the chimney. Unless you weigh in at less than 7 stone then it's unlikely that you'll fit - it's then the outside route for you! Was graded VD and you were meant to squeeze through the narrowing, impossible for most people.

Pre 1970, details unknown.

Ticklists: A "Dirty Dozen" More.

A very tight squeeze! so tight my girlfriends hips wouldn't physically fit. Does my bum look big in this! Classic VD

Dirty and horrible. Nearly got out of the top but was caught by my harness. Given VD in guidebook but going around the outside of the crack at the top looked nails.

Tried to fit through the gap, got stuck, managed to wiggle out and came back down!

Unless your an absolute midgit, or a small seven year old, there is absolutley no way any normal person can fit through that gap at the top (without breaking a few ribs). Still a good laugh though, and I did at least manage to touch the top!
