Rockfax Description
7a+ S1. Approach by traversing in (low tide) under the The Conger, enter the cave by ducking under a low roof and traversing wet rock to a ledge at the back of the cave. From here, move up and right across a slab onto an arete (spotter needed). Climb the arete to the top of the cave and a rest. Move down and out to The Conger chimney via complex moves. Finish as for The Conger. It is possible to start right of the arete, move up into a bridging position before striding left over a large wet luminous green seaweed patch using a miraculously dry pocket to join the original line (safer and no need for a spotter). © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Safer start. 6a. It is possible (though maybe only in good conditions) to start further right around the arete, and pull up into a chimney, from where a long stride left over the luminous seaweed gains a good foothold on the arete and the original route , with a miraculously dry pocket in the middle of it being useful. Definitely felt safer to me, especially if you are alone.

βeta: What a find by Mike Robertson! Outrageous and super fun! Get on it late afternoon early/evening much better light than the previous times I've been in the cave.
