Climb the very vegetated slab on the right of the crag to the high cave on the right (Shelob's Cave), before squirming through the blowhole. Belay in cave for full effect!

Chossy nightmare first half. Should have brought a trowel. 2nd pitch made it all worth it (just).

Lead both pitches.Grassy slab an unexpected challenge. Cave and through the hole great climbing on good holds. Unfortunately, Kirsten backed off and I had to go down through the hole, retrieve my gear and then take 2 back though the hole on a top rope.

Led the first pitch, then Matt led the second, first was... vegitated, the second pitch was wide, my hips didnt like it to much, was an alright route.

partz 14/Oct/12 AltLd O/S

I did the cave. Pretty fun, but its not worth the esoteric adventure to get there! Great exposure and position

The Ivanator 16/Sep/12 AltLd O/S

I led the cave pitch which was excellent. Napalm is probably required to restore the first pitch to any semblance of rock climbing.

Fun climb. Great positioning. And a very worth while climb.

luke glaister 20/May/12 Lead O/S

Amazing exposure, lead Chris out of it after the longest belay of my life.. Good effort to Chris for giving it a go! One of the weirdest routes so far.
