Rockfax Description
Technical face-climbing up the appealing wall with a flowstone sheet at its base. Start at the short flowstone-wall.
Climb to a block and move right and up to a small ledge. Step left and climb to the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Start about 2 metres right of the arete at the amazing flowstone feature. Climb up left of this to the detached looking block and then traverse right for about 1.5m to a crack. Move up to two slots one above the other and then step left and up to the ledge. Step slightly left again and climb up past shallow pockets to a flat hold and pull up onto this and then easily to the top.

Great route - worth 2 stars I reckon. Love how the rock texture changes the higher you climb. Nice view over to the Great Cave Area which is next on the the to do list.

In the mizzle. Interesting climbing with some cool holds on the flowstone. Loads of gear and rests between hard sections. Must improve my mantling though!

Flat hold was wet at the top which made the move a little more interesting!
