had one fall, due to not reading the route correctly, seems you go up right of second clip to allowing clipping then traverse under clip and climb the flowstone to the left of the clip.

One amazing flowstone "cave" / hold near the top which allows you to rock over and finish. Tricky for me but really enjoyable!

Struggled on this for some reason - tried to go too far right I think, at bottom. Easy enough when you're into the feel of the slippy stuff. Unusual to get a knee-bar in at 4+!
