Rockfax Description
A bruising battle for most. From a big thread, hand traverse the greasy flange and finger-jam the roof-crack. Once established on the front face things ease instantly. A VS from when grades were random, and upgraded (yet again) by popular demand! © Rockfax

FA. Joe Brown 1950.

βeta: Why isn't Cave Crawl in the guide? It is truely unique amongst all the routes of the peak in making you think you'll die by getting stuck and never getting out again. This, added to the rabbit from a hole experience of popping out of the top of the innards of Swimmers Chimney makes it well worth doing!
