A (not very) subtle blend of climbing and caving. The compelling narrow rift to a tight exit through the cliff. Speaking as one who emerged trouserless from its clutches the climb is well worth exploring.

didn't dave pegg do a route called 'the possessed' up the wall on the left of starvation chimney?

Brilliant and perverse fun! From the top of the green slab, exit 'under' the huge jammed block into the tight chimney that gives the route its name. But do you enter facing inwards or outwards? :)

Fantastic :-) The crux for me was getting to the top of the green slab, which was green, wet, and slippery, so I udged my way up the lovely offwidth on the right.
