I chose, quite sensibly I thought, to climb outside the crack with some bridging (the right wall was very damp though), despite my usual penchant for chimneys and tunnels. I was therefore surprised when both my partners chose to dive deeply inside, having never shown any similar sort of behaviour...

Seconded, then led after a breather, by El, who fitted up the crack at the top as opposed to having to come out to mantle the last move. It's rare to find someone skinnier than me.

Nic did a marvellous second using a combination of bridging, arm-, leg- and unborn child-jams.

Beautiful climb and great fun. Made using a mixture of elbow jams, slithering up the crack and using my baby bump as a wedge!
