Barn owl nesting in the cave, sitting on Four eggs. She flew off and didn't come back all pm so please avoid the route for a while.

Good route. The top slab was much better protected than I was anticipating -- a bomber cam in the slot made it feel pretty friendly for E2.

Cheers Andrew for pushing me to do it. Kestrel cave had in situ kestrel (didn't realise till it was eyeballing me from less than a foot away) so route best avoided for next few months.

Not all that bold if you place a sideways hex 6 in the top of the borehole (probably e1 with that in place) and even less so if you reach leftwards every now and then to clip one of the shiny new bolts on the next line (you could call that hvs I reckon... kinda wish I hadn't ;-) Nice climbing though!

Got onto the slab, thought i had missed the 'hidden slot', down climbed a tricky move. Went back up, committed to the slab and low and behold, the hidden slot appeared. Sooooo glad to see it.
