Rockfax Description
A fine expedition up the left edge of the bay, was originally done in three pitches, named after a famous London tearoom. A short groove (4b) leads into the cave. Head up the corner to the roof then traverse to the left arete and make difficult moves round to a narrow ledge. The leaning wall just to the left leads awkwardly to a rest and a finish up the superbly positioned final arete. © Rockfax

fair bit of rope drag, but i dont think that can be helped with that cave. Cool rockover move onto a ledge, and the top arete is exposed, not too easy, and well enough protected to be really enjoyable.
