Rockfax Description
Interesting! This variation avoids the hard section of the regular route by some speleological lunacy. Climb towards the slot beneath the boulders then get squirming. Helmet, harness and runners will all impede your progress. © Rockfax

antmorgan1991 5 Jun, 2011 Lead O/S One HELL of a fun route! Easy until the ledge, the vertical caving practice was a bugger. The sun was up when I went in, and had set by the time I topped out. Real issue with rope drag through the squeeze. Funniest route imaginable, especially for belayers with the noises made by climbers!
