That looks really fun. I'm based near Loughborough, so not South Leicestershire, but could be curious to learn more!

How high is it at it's max? Would a rope be needed and if so would it be possible to climb it from both sides, thus transcend the gap between a traverse (having the option to climb from both directions) to a vertical climb (usually having quite a notice difference between directions).

I look forward to hearing how it all works out.

Cheers all who have e mailed me and posted. The archway is on the footpath that runs between  Shuttleworth lane (near Cosby golf club) and Cottage lane which comes out of Broughton Astley. The best parking is at the Cosby end of the footpath.

The following pic should give an idea of scale, the crack is slap bang in the middle of the tunnel so should be dry all year round.

I have merged a couple of shots taken from either side of the tunnel to show the crack going the full span of the arch.

Would be nice to know what people think if they do get on it

I have climbed this, we dry tooled it about 8 years ago. Used to live down the road, we didn't get to the apex and I can't recall ever trying it as a normal finger crack. I'm sure I had a photo on it but can't seem to find it.
