40m. DWS S0 Starts from the pinnacle at the right end of Oz wall which is accessed from the White Rhino approach. Drop down from the pinnacle via a huge calcite encrusted jug on the left wall to a good sandstone jug below. Traverse right along the cave's left wall on tiring but positive holds to attain the rock bridge and a rest. Squeeze up the crystal chimney back to daylight. A t-shirt is advisable.

was going to try cave woman in and out but when we were on the bridge 2 seals were hanging out in the cave below and didn't fancy falling in!

Wicked line - tricky down climb until you work out the right hand sequence. Climbed up to the roof of the first part of the cave to find only a tiny slot - down climbied and continued to the brige. Spicy chimney to finish. Class outing.

The climbing isn't all that great, but it gets 3 stars for weirdness.

A great route which feels really adventurous as you can't see it from the top! Was a bit apprehensive but dropped down to the first mega jug to have a look and the hand holds were obvious and looked good so decided to go for it. Last climb of the day, thought it would feel desperate but it was fine as every hold is a massive jug! Really good but think it's a bit too easy for 6c so I reckon 6b+ (or may be I'm just fairly fit at the moment?). Fun finish up the chimney thing, which was dry.

Fantastic climbing and a great experience to cap it off. I wouldn't finish it that way every time but certainly a worthwhile experience!

Squirming through a dark wet chimney is not my idea of fun.

Bit of a train going into the back of the cave, I think there were about 6 of us! Scary chimney! Although in reality it would be diffictult to fall off.

Solo dogged?! pumped out just before rock bridge, but got back on from in the water and went up the blow hole. no hard moves on the dropdown if you can find the holds!
