[b a cropper , 2 kb]12m. Climb the right edge of the yellow wall then the bulges until it is possible to escape leftwards. © ROCKFAX
In the cave is a yellow wall containing a hanging crack. From this it is possible to access a thinner crack and pull over bulges to rounded ledges. Move left to a sloping ledge from where it is possible to climb off using the easier upper slabs.

A hard move below the roof before the easier upper, but quite tricky traverse.

Minor miracle that I got up this - was persistently in the act of falling off. Massive and powerful reach to surmount the bulge and then some crabbing leftwards to easier ground. Took Matt a few tries so it must be hard.
Alex Winter - 2nd O/S - 31/Jul/11 with M. Gibbings

Fell off at the bottom first try. Did next go.

Hidden - 11/Jul/10

Granted, tried it towards the end of a hot day, and I should've worked it out a bit more before leaving the ground, but feels hard...
