Look, before you leap* 6b
[Descending into The Cauldron, 3 kb]11m. DWS F6b and S0. Now recommended as a hard downclimb to link the two halves of Rainbow Bridge into a safer and more sustained DWS. It is easier to access as a downclimb than climbing it as a base up DWS which involves an abseil down to a very worn threaded tape on Into the Fire. Fom here you enter the deep groove on the left and undercut your way out to the headwall where strenuous pocket pulling awaits.

Down-climb for the cauldron. The "deep groove" is a bit scary I think, especially when its wet.
