[Muffing the start of Cavewoman (F6c), 4 kb]40m. DWS S0 Starts from the pinnacle at the right end of Oz wall which is accessed from the White Rhino approach. Drop down from the pinnacle via a huge calcite encrusted jug on the left wall to a good sandstone jug below. Traverse right along the cave's left wall on tiring but positive holds to attain the rock bridge and a rest. Squeeze up the crystal chimney back to daylight. A t-shirt is advisable.

Bit of a train going into the back of the cave, I think there were about 6 of us! Scary chimney! Although in reality it would be diffictult to fall off.

Solo dogged?! pumped out just before rock bridge, but got back on from in the water and went up the blow hole. no hard moves on the dropdown if you can find the holds!
