Nice one Orrin

I'm sure this has been done before though - just not reported. I think this has on old aid route in the ceiling. I remember seeing Nick Bullock zipping about all over the place. I'm sure Ned Feehally spent time down there also. Brilliant venue.

There are loads of little hidden gems around Leicestershire - check out some of Robin Richmonds routes at the Brand.
