60m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
An amazing classic which takes you to places not usually found on a 6a+. The route is very exposed and intimidating but technically relatively straightforward but don't underestimate it! Unfortunately the bolts are already showing their age.

1) 5+. Follow the steep (sometimes greasy) rock up the left-hand wall above the deep slot. Belay on bolts on the bridge.
2) 6a+. Climb direct above the belay on good-but-hidden holds - spaced bolts. Hand traverse right to a hanging stance.
3) 6a. Make a tricky move up left then revel in the superb position rising up leftwards to the exit hole © Rockfax

Intimidating from the abseil until the top-out. What a setting though. Ascent complete with passing boat party and falling rocks.

Climbed in series as Middle man. Large lump of rock broke off causing a fall at the end of the traverse section of the final pitch.

Spectacular! One of the most memorable routes I've ever done. Led the last (?crux) pitch which felt like a harder and scarier version of Dream. Brilliant!

Took lead fall over gear on p1 - you must take loose chalk and lots of it! Greasy to high hell! Partner then led p1,2. And I finished with p3. Cannot stress how much I needed chalk on this route. Apart from that, awesome climb - brilliant day out just make sure you take chalk. Chalk, chalk, chalk.... Also bolts are pretty dodgy at p3 belay. Take a cam/size 2 nut to protect. 'Revel in the exposure'

Led P1,2. Stunning. Despite being a bit greasy it's probably my favourite route ever.

had a major epic in this hole!dodgy hand drawn topo left me climbing some rediculous grade route and getting heat stroke.finally found route which was in a very greasy state and fell off the last hard move of p3 before dragging myself out and collapsing in a crumpled heap at the top.NOT A GOOD DAY!

Unique climb! You need two ropes for this one. One for rappelling (60m) down to the cave and one for climbing.

Awesome experience - Dave led P1 - hard for 5+, I led P2 - very run out 6a, Dave led P3 - 6a+ and the crux. Climbing out is only marginally less terrifying than abbing in

Pitch 3 felt harder than 6a. Incredible experience, won't forget this for a while. Future classic?

Did it one day after heavy rain: 1st pitch completely wet, 2nd pitch partly wet (crux dry), 3rd pitch mostly dry (only the first move wet). Would be a 6a elsewhere, but the seriousness of getting in and out of the cave justifies a soft grading.

Ran top two pitches together, middle one has some dodgy bolting but top one is the tough one, some quite nice moves for the grade in a great postion...

Awesome route .. awesome abseil in .. best climb of my life so far. Led 2nd pitch but went too far left and had to let go and then redo move staying right. Learnt a lot about reading rock from that one mistake (think feet). Traverse and top pitch v. exposed. Grinning when I climbed out and still grinning now :)
