Tunnocks, Downgrade Window

Wed 14 Aug 2013

Went to check out what was described as an ‘acrobatic traverse’ by Pete at the end of Downgrade just off Hedonism Highway. The traverse was actually a large gap to a window the other side of a cross-rift, but clearly a continuation of the same passage. The gap was too large to step across and the window was too high to swing into so access was achieved by bolting up and round the wall from the ledge, then using a deviation in the opposite wall the rope was able to hang nearer the window allowing a swing across to it. Time had run out by then so exploring the continuing passage was left for the next day.
