last part of the last pitch a bit rubbish, but got to get to decent route somehow. Flake bit was great, and food protection available throughout.

I liked the pitch up to the cave, nice climbing. Rubbish after the cave exit tho.

...if you like climbing chossy routes with suspect gear, and crumbly flakes...it was alright.

I led the nice first pitch, Colin led the slimy second and third pitches together.

Interesting crux of the cave particularly as this was wet and dirty although the guidebook suggests difficulties are earlier(?), chimney and exit left to good hand holds
