6c+, S2. At the end of the arch-traverse on ...and Captain Bloods Cavern, step down and continue left to a jutting foot-ledge. Climb the bulge above on undercuts and side-pulls to a rest. Finish up left. A variation DJ Bloods Mariana Variation drops down to below the roof of the traverse and then heads left to pull back up over the roof to join the parent route (7b+). © ROCKFAX

Fun times. The wetness added some extra excitement.

Wet holds on the crux from seepage and heavy rain made this pretty exiting

I'd forgotten how good this climb is! Massively underrated. Postions, rock structure and moves make this one of the best DWS routes I've ever done.

I would suggest scrambling up right from the rest ledge near the top and finishing up the corner above Captain Blood... If you scramble up left as in the guide, the rock is pretty dodgy - part of the top ledge shifted in my hand!

Brilliant route, felt safe and not too sustained. Two grades easier with 'the Felix effect' ; )
