Castellan*** E5 6b
42m, 2 pitches. The impressive roof at the right end of the cave is more reasonable than it appears from a distance. Well-protected but strenuous with generally good holds linked by great moves. 1) 6b, 21m. Somehow gain jugs on the lip and follow these into a thrutchy crack leading to a hanging stance. No big cigar? 2) 6b, 21m. The crack above the stance has one very hard move and excellent protection throughout. FFA. Steve Bancroft. John Allen 1976 (also over two days!) © ROCKFAX

Ground-up. I got the pumpy first pitch, fantastic sporty climbing through the unlikely roof - not your average High Tor trad climb!
