One of the original free routes on the cliff, polished and with some spaced gear, but still worthwhile.
1) 4b, 18m. Climb the corner below the left-hand end of the big Castellan roof, taking care with suspect rock. This is also an approach pitch to the cave.
2) 4c, 24m. Climb the crack above, then move right and up to gain the chimney. Finish up this. Be aware of loose blocks on this pitch, a result of some severe winters. © Rockfax
