Great route, led 3rd pitch. With a clip stick you can make the first awful polished movement easier.
We top out but it took us an hour to come back. The way down is not clear at all. We abseailed down from rock and then we climb the cave down. Not an easy walk down, I would recommend to abseil down from the belay station at the top of the third pitches.

Lead both pitches...didn't do third pitch as listed as Trad in the guidebook. Had a real struggle getting onto the block at the start of P1 and had a bit of an epic on P2 having gone right instead of left at one point then having to downclimb to clip whilst miles above the last clip. Felt hairy for a 4+ pitch so not surprised to see the voting generally lifts it a grade.

Lead the second pitch and the easy part to the top after the third pitch to abseil down the cave. Abseil down the cave hasn't got the best bits, one rusty old peg some threads and now a nut we left.
