46m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Fun and intriguing climbing that gives a memorable outing.
Start at a ledge just to the left of a slim curving crack on the right side of the face.
1) 5a, 20m. Climb the wall just left of the crack, joining it at 4m. Follow the crack to ledges and a massive thread just above. Pull steeply through the bulge, thread, and continue past another thread to a body-size circular cave. Belay in the cave, and be sure to search out and sign the visitors' log book. Alternatively; from just below the massive thread, traverse up and rightwards to the base of a small corner and follow this to the lower of two horizontal breaks. Traverse the break left, past a peg, to the body-size circular cave.
2) 5a, 12m. Climb steeply out of the cave on the right, peg, and follow a short groove to easier ground and belay on a ledge.
3) 4b, 14m. Traverse left around the exposed arete into a corner (junction with Earl of Perth). Continue traversing left for 5m to a peg and climb up 5m to an abseil point at a large metal rock anchor. © Rockfax

Digga 26 Jul AltLd rpt This is a great route. I started right in under the curving crack (felt tough this way) and led the first two pitches as one nearly stacking it slightly misreading the exit from the cave. It's a mega-pitch linking 1 and 2 and well worth doing. The best pitch has to be at the top though...delightful traverse in an amazing position. A lovely way to end the day's climbing.

Dom Goodwin 24 Jul 2nd dog Well worth E1 5b. Managed to get an ok fist jam above the cave, but feet skittering on the slippery holdless rock and no other positive holds, so eventually resorted to grabbing the quickdraw on the peg before my strength ran out. Still felt 5a even with the aid! P3 traverse is delightful, nice and straightforward after the first two hard pitches. The visitors book is still there but has sadly pretty much disintegrated. :-(

The biggest shock was thinking that it'd be easy once I'd got out the cave. I loved padding up the groove with continued interest. And a very nice traverse to finish it all. This climb is great, *** for sure in my book.

Found the 1st overlappy bulge more intimidating than the cave, was hard to place gear just above until i found a friend 1 works well but ruins a good handhold. Exited the cave by stepping out right + up right of it, as guide says. Directly up looks ard. The book was pretty bone dry, but still stuck together, managed to get a patch near the back to sign. New book needed. Forgot to time it properly but still going rather slow on trad, about 3.5 hrs back to the bottom.

Phil_Brock 19 May, 2018 AltLd O/S Even better than giants cave buttress. Led pitch 1. Got quite pumped placing gear around the overhang (couldn't use the giant thread due to a bird) so downclimbed a couple of moves to rest before powering through. Cave is a little cramped if you're 6ft and the logbook is unfortunately looking completely trashed. Second pitch definitely the technical crux although it's well protected and the traverse is easy but highly enjoyable.

No noisy chicks but couldn't see right inside nest to see if any eggs so maybe good to leave this route for a while? Rested on gear just below this point but decided to continue as no sign of bird wanting to return. Otherwise led first two pitches together. Start appears to be below Earl of Perth with traverse diagonally right into route proper. Guidebook start well overgrown and no easy belay position. I thought that move out of cave and next couple of moves tough for HVS.

jsmcfarland 27 Aug, 2015 AltLd O/S I linked pitches 1 and 2, Tim led p3 (the traverse). The 2 main pitches are well protected, with great moves. Found the route as a whole easy but incredibly pumpy, apart from the moves leaving the cave on the second pitch, the amount of polish makes this extremely hard, plus there is a very inobvious hidden 'hold'. Top end of 5a Absolutely brilliant route, linking first 2 pitches is required in my opinion! :)

ruaidh 20 Sep, 2009 Lead β Its still hard. I think this is the finest climb of the grade in the gorge. Take a REALLY big sling for the thread. Also, you can chain P1 and P2 together - saves faffing at the cave. The crux I think is the exit from the cave. This is how I did it... WARNING: PLOT SPOILER! From the cave, clip the peg up and right above your head, and then #3 cam in the upper of the two slots to your left. Step right to a small ledge using a left underpull on the L edge of the cave. Then reach round right (with long arms) to get an opposing right pull, using L side of cave as bridge. Get left hand on a reasonable flattish hold above the head and step up with the left foot onto the break at cave height thats now hidden from view. Then (and this is the key move), go with the right hand for a good vertical edge six inches above and right of the left hand. Bring the right foot up to oppose this pull. Six inches above the edge is an even better hold for the left hand, reach up to this and heave the left foot onto a magic foot hold just below the #3 cam. Simples! Hope this isn't too much information.
