A section of this has fallen off making it harder than the grade given, loose and gravelly at the top so beware when lowering off.
Matt Smith - Lead O/S - 21/Nov/14 with Zoe Taylor

A wandering expedition that feels hard for a 4+.

Amazing climb, with stunning views. Robert Kunzmann got some posing shots toproping the overhanging eye through the ridge on the lower off.

Not enjoyable and felt harder than 4 in places. Also couldn't reach the ground abseiling off with a 60m rope. Not recommended!

My knees suffered after this climb. Conserve rope by rethreading at top. No second so cleaned gear on way back down attaching to rope with a quickDraw.

Climbed with 60 metre rope. You can reach the ground OK if you lower off the right hand side. Will require a second to clean it though. Nice route up a feature.....

Climbed on a 60m but when lowered off so Michaela could second found the rope was way short of the ground - by about 10m! Ended up climbing again to strip the gear and abseiling from half way down!

very loose block on about the 3rd pull over. not using this (you wouldn't really want to) deffo pushes the grade up.

First route in Europe.
Richy boy - Lead O/S - 24/Oct/12 with AliciaHarrison

some loose holds on here now, and some very big loose boulders further up. Lower off into free space on the right and a 60m is just enough with a bit of stretch :-)

Only got to 5(ish) bolt. The bolt beneath had mallion in situ. This felt harder than a 4. Didnt top out - just as well as our rope was 60m and it seems from other comments this isnt long enough! We didnt encounter any loose rock though.

Loose rock ruins what would be a nice route. Abseil to the right of the route into the cave and a 60m rope is fine.

Took painful fall because of loose rock. 60m rope not long enough for route despite guidebook giving 28m. Avoid!
Liam Ingram - Lead dog - 05/Apr/09 with Robert Taylor

agreed - my mate broke his arm due to a massive rock fall
