We actually found rock on this route, and some of it even remained attached to the cliff. Seriously, this is high in the grade and there's a lot of heather on the top pitch - grab as many stems in each hand as you can and pull carefully. The second pitch has a tricky start to get into the groove, but there's actually protection where it is needed (bring offset nuts) and the rock is reasonably sound. The rising rightward traverse is poorly protected and the belay isn't obvious - we belayed off a sapling, nuts and slings just after the rock ran out on pitch 2. The guidebook description is surprisingly accurate and should lead you up the right climb in the right place. Park in the pull-out by the mobile phone mast and follow the footpath through the small conifer plantation as described in the book. However, the best approach to the climb itself is not to try to scramble directly up to the cave - the gullies here are steep, muddy and vegetated. Instead, walk up the hill as if following the descent path and traverse in when it looks safe(ish) to do so. This could be an adventure climb to do when everywhere else is wet, and it should catch the sun nicely in the evening. On a clear day the views would be beautiful.
