Rockfax Description
A hugely entertaining and fun outing exiting through the same blow-hole as Graduation Day, but at a significantly easier grade. Start near the back of the cave and climb all the way through the chimney/roof to the rock blow-hole belay. Some find a head-torch a big help. © Rockfax

Definately and adventure! Don't be put off by the fact that it is soaking wet, the route is well worth doing and the wetness doean't detract from it. The route bridges the whole way up on large foot holds that are suprisingly grippy despite the water. As long as you can bridge the route is fine (dont try and pull up on slippery hands). Definately exposed towars the top as you have nothing but air beneath you. Plenty of pro, and definately a memorable experience. A little tight squeezing out of the hole, those of a larger persuasion may struggle.

Absolutely brilliant climbing! Had come into the cave last year to inspect the route, but found the prospect of a dark and wet Severe to be worse than a clean VS! Jumped on it this time and found it a very pleasant climb, with great holds (unseen from below), and good gear (a headtorch was useful in the ceiling to get a good view of inside the cracks). Very hard to communicate with partners once done though! Belayed at the exit of the cave.

Graeme Hammond 30/Aug/15 Lead O/S

Meant to be a chilled route after climbing at boulder ruckle, bex didn't think so. Great fun, bit damp and greasy in places but good gear although I can't be certain in the roof section as it was hard to see without a headtorch.

Dave Mahon 15/Aug/15 Lead

The previous team bottled it because it was 'horrendous, slimy and wet everywhere' etc. It turned out to be the best climbing fun I have had in ages. OK, it was damp but threads and bridging made the first bit safe and the lovely foot ledges in the roof were perfect. A headtorch would have come in handy to find gear in the roof as the bright light entering the blowhole made it very difficult to spot placements. Belay at the exit.
