Another excellent route. Did in 3 pitches 5c+, 5c (to cave), 5c+. P1 quite hard, a bit polished and bolts a bit spaced. P3 wild traversing L out of cave - would poss be easier carrying straight up this on p2 and belaying higher.

P. 1 only. This pitch is short on both holds and bolts. Good climbing, but I'd say 6a. It wanders around a bit, so maybe I missed the best holds.
