25m. A disappear-only-to-reappear act provides the magic for onlookers, but will leave you covered in pigeon poo(not so true). Start from the left-hand end of the cave Gallery. Step left onto the vegetable ledge, and climb diagonally left to the obvious cave entrance (possible belay).Burrow in and slide up a tube a la Indiana Jones to recover daylight at the upper entrance. Bear rightwards past a whitebeam tree to tree belays.

βeta: If you ab off the tree at the top of Giant's Cave Buttress (the one you'd belay off), you'll land yourself pretty much in the gallery. Be careful as there is some loose rock on the ab that would be nasty for anyone underneath in the Amphitheatre.
