3 out of 5 stars Escape Hatch

We had ambitions for Faust or Gargoyle, but the fog was so dense it felt like rain. Climbed this instead, and had a load of fun - a bit adventurous in that weather.

Low scenery and exposure because we were socked in a cloud.

4 out of 5 stars Decent

The climb is rated 5.5, but all four of us (two rope teams) thought it was more difficult than Off-Width-Chimney which seems fairly rated at 5.6. The protection rating of PG seemed fair.
