Rockfax Description
Bizarre but strangely attractive. Climb the easy chimney then move left to the claustrophobic slot. Squirm up this, then into the crag to reach easy ground on the other side of the face. A right-hand version is the similarly Stygian Captain's Crawl, Diff. The grades of both of these are nominal. © Rockfax

Hardest part was the traverse left to the opening! Either that or I'm just not having enough pies these days. No 'squeeze' involved, sans harness/gear.

This was truly dreadful. I only got through at the third attempt after I had jettisoned all of the gear on my harness and removed all excess layers. It is the booty that dos it. And to think I was laughing whilst belaying.

As part of the ten edges challenge. Climbed 10 routes in as many hours, on crags between bamford and birchen. Used a 24m 9.1mm rope clipping in with a big boa and belaying on direct belays using the same boa. Rack consisted of 7 wires, 3 cams, 1 hex, 8 snap gate crabs and 5 slings. Great day! We came last as we're pants at running, but climbed some top routes.

So much fun!! At last, a route where being small and short is definitely an advantage! Took hardly any gear but still managed to get my hips stuck several times. Entered the crack high, facing left, udged sideways to the back then exited left on my stomach, removing various bits of gear on the way! Not bothered what grade it is - this was fun!

Not sure how this wasn't logged at the time. Absolutely hilarious route. By hallway up the crack I was completely horizontal, my legs sticking out from the cliff and waving in the air to great amusement from the friends watching. There laughing cased me to laugh which made progress even more challenging and increased the laughter further. Progress if hard work but you can jut lie prone in the crack to rest.

I belayed Rich on the climb next to this which turned out to be horrid and slippy in the wet so he escaped onto this but did not finish because he got stuck and squirmed out backwards and retreated! So I did not second. But am allowing it to be in my logbook because Rich has tagged me in it so if I dont list it then it will keep on showing up when I click on 'Add logs from partners' and irritate me!

Highly amusing climb. Leaving harness on was a mistake so decided to remove it while stuck, shorts and harness came down together...

Didn't appreciate quite how entertainingly bizarre this route was till I was on (in?!) it. A route on which rope could only hinder, worth removing your harness too (I did so half way up). Great for bruising obscure bits of ones anatomy.
