The wide crack with chockstones is a bit of a battle to a tight, spider-ridden, subterranean exit. Not one for chubby types.

More of a squeeze than fat man's chimney - I had to take all my tops off to get out of the cave

Poor route, green and orange stuff growing all over it, full of monster spiders and really nasty without being difficult. wouldn't recommend

enormous fun!
i had to take off my harness to fit through the top hole!
my mate squealed like a girl as he hauled his monstrous girth through it.
There's an entertaining sapling to sling for protection on the way up.

But most disappointingly a distinct lack of spiders!

Found this a bit insecure for Diff (was soloing), but enjoyable, more technical than it looks, and a nice finish ;)

Clean and delightful. As a challenge, my second kept helmet and harness on, as well as his monstrous rack of gear . . . and still sidled through the exit at first attempt.
