Kaboom** E4 6a
25m. Left of "The Winds of War" is an overhanging wall split by a crack. This route climbs the crack. Abseil straight down from the block at the top of the cliff, down a corner, and then maintaining a little bit of swing to gain a good ledge at the mouth of a large cave. Traverse right for three or four metres to gain the start of the crack. Climb the crack with good jams. Move onto the wall on the left to gain a positive diagonal ledge. Move up this into an off-width finish before the easy corner above. Sustained, physical, well protected and pretty good.

Good but a spring route

An intimidating adventurous route! Bring a double set of med/ large cams! I didn't and ran out of placeable gear, got scared and jumped off. Was a bit greasey to. Worth trying

A bit wet from seepage for the first couple of metres but otherwise the rock was in great nick. Perhaps only E3 5c - those more able on crack climbs may be able to shed some light.
