My son and I climbed inside the Devils Kitchen on Sunday 27/8/06. We intended to climb Twll Du (V Diff) but instead chose Night Moves (E3). Once we found a variety of kit left we assumed this was going to be an exciting climb, we would not be disappointed.
We managed to climb in four pitches with one pitch a hanging belay. It was difficult to hear and respond to calls as the volume of water cascading down made it rather difficult.
The atmoshere within this cauldron of excitment was further enhanced due to the dampness, constant level of concentration and the colourful shouts from both climbers.
A climb which will be remembered for some time to come.
