The first climb in the cave proper. Use the pockets to get established on the wall then make a big move onto the conglomerate ledge. Heelhook leftwards and then follow the juggy pockets back right to gain the lower off.

great! manage to find a very painful jug on the rail which was a tad annoying though and seemed to insist on using it.

The line is now dry from winter/spring seepage. One of the best 6cs I've done in the UK.

Discovered amazing green goop in sidepull and jugs at the top on first effort. Half a bag of loose chalk to dry it off, went 2nd go.

Beautiful climbing on superb undercuts, jugs and conglomerate features. The side-pull before the penultimate bolt was a bit slimy and it took me a few goes to get to grips with it.
