Rockfax Description
60m. A terrific little escapade, traversing all the territory between the East and West Caves, thereafter continuing through the West Cave and back to the beach. Best tackled at about mid-tide, especially for the entry into the West Cave. Start on the Grotto Ledge and wander off westward, with a circular deviation beneath a bizarre, overhead through-cave, to finally arrive in the West Cave. Continue into the cave, and climb diagonally upwards, then drop down a slabby chimney to reach the exit 'window'. © Rockfax

Really nice, adventurous traverse through the cave. It's dry enough now.

Great route. The climb down from the ridge is sketchy at one point, but really nice after, the bit in the cave is virtually caving.
