Impossible to climb when wet, doesn't get any more slippery than this!

WARNING: there is a very loose stack of blocks on Red Chimney/Jester. They are located on the right hand side 2/3 height of Jester or left hand side 2/3 height of Red Chimeny (i believe red chimney actual climbs up them). please be cautions of yourself, your second and other climbers when in this area.

Pulled over the top of the crag once to find a USAF A10 Tankbuster coming straight at me [luckily most routes have 'bombproof' gear!]. Don't retire from climbing until you have done Rock Island Line E15b - some very satisfying moves [if you like jamming].

Some kids threw rocks from the wall, the first missed me because I managed to duck just in time. Some big holes in the wall right of Overhanging Crack, and I wouldn't like to climb there until the wall is made safe.

Tigers overhang is a giveaway at VS and excellent fun. Don't let the 'big move' put you off. The protection is 100% (look for the V shaped cracks in the roof - they take a wide range of gear in excellent, well seated positions) and go for a big jug for the right hand! First time I did it I lost both feet and still cruised it!

A lovely place to spend a summer's evening... try Sunset (MS) Overhanging Crack (MVS) and Tiger's Overhang (VS 4c) the pub's only 5 minutes away as well!
