Rockfax Description
Technical face-climbing up the appealing wall with a flowstone sheet at its base. Start at the short flowstone-wall.
Climb to a block and move right and up to a small ledge. Step left and climb to the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Start about 2 metres right of the arete at the amazing flowstone feature. Climb up left of this to the detached looking block and then traverse right for about 1.5m to a crack. Move up to two slots one above the other and then step left and up to the ledge. Step slightly left again and climb up past shallow pockets to a flat hold and pull up onto this and then easily to the top.

Crux holds wet, rested on the rope and had some tight to do the crux move

Top holds take time to dry! Otherwise a nice little route and not too tough. Over too soon.

Great route - worth 2 stars I reckon. Love how the rock texture changes the higher you climb. Nice view over to the Great Cave Area which is next on the the to do list.

Alex the Alex 12/Jul/14 Lead O/S

In the mizzle. Interesting climbing with some cool holds on the flowstone. Loads of gear and rests between hard sections. Must improve my mantling though!
