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

βeta: You can't possibly walk by this without being enticed or horrified. Great fun. Caving or climbing you decide!
