30m. A pleasant excursion up the slab above the pool. Start a few metres right of the cave on a block at the edge of the pool.
Clip the bolt, then step down and right beyond the diagonal crack, before climbing directly up to a second bolt. Continue up the scoop above to a large ledge. Climb over a steep wall to gain the clean bolted slab above. Two bolt lower-off gets you back to ground.

Originally done in two pitches finishing up a vegetated corner left of the new lower-off

BTphonehome 30 Jun Lead O/S Thin moves to the second bolt with the thought of an early (and cold) bath never far from my mind. Bit of a broken route but worthwhile. Finished up the vegetated corner for full adventure and banter purposes.

Reaver2k 13 Jul, 2009 AltLd O/S I led the first pitch. I think I went slightly wrong. I clipped the bolt and stepped down and right down the the water line and out left, then up on some bold feeling moves straight up on very small crimps for feet and hands. A lot more like a sport route, very little potential for gear placements and plenty of bolts. Amazing route really enjoyed it and a very pleasurable experience of slate, after the first route I was very dubious!
