Rockfax Description
A short but useful filler-in. Start below a corner with a block in it above the horizontal break.
Climb the wall past the horizontal breaks to the block and finish up the short corner above. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Start as for Pigs Ear on the vertical flowstone wall beneath the finishing fist crack of Stalactite. Climb on large spaced holds passing good but technical natural protection to the niche below the steep finishing crack on Stalactite. Finish up Stalactite or step up and left into a steep groove for a move or two of 5a. Belay off the tree.

Pretty good route I just wish the tufa climbing was a bit more continuous as that bit was good, a little spoilt by the top in my opinion.

Really nice climbing, even if the top section was running with water, the middle section fairly overrun with beasties and cobwebs and the start requiring some bramble bashing. Abseiled back down to retrieve gear since Rik was only on belay duty due to a dodgy ankle.
