18m. The long chimney is approached by a crack to pass blocks and then gives classic bridging, as well as back and footing, if you don't get too involved with its dark depths.

Good bridging at top but full on green lichen stuff and flying ants!

Having read the descrioption in the BMC guide ('best chimney in the Peak' or some such) I was expecting something a little better than this. Rubbish first half, nice middle section, ordinary finish. Half a star maybe?
