The first climb in the cave proper. Use the pockets to get established on the wall then make a big move onto the conglomerate ledge. Heelhook leftwards and then follow the juggy pockets back right to gain the lower off.

Hard start, then buckets. The crux is avoiding the painful conglomerate bits.

The line is now dry from winter/spring seepage. One of the best 6cs I've done in the UK.

Discovered amazing green goop in sidepull and jugs at the top on first effort. Half a bag of loose chalk to dry it off, went 2nd go.

Tricky boldery start. Very juggy and steep after half height. Great route which feels like it ends too soon

Finally! It was only moderately soaking on one hold so we dried it off to do it. Only taken 3 years...

Beautiful climbing on superb undercuts, jugs and conglomerate features. The side-pull before the penultimate bolt was a bit slimy and it took me a few goes to get to grips with it.
