Restricted Access

Access for climbing is only permitted on the proviso that climbers do not disturb any of the cave floor or climb on the conglomerate pillars that are on the cave walls. No new routes are to be developed here. This agreement has taken a long time to negotiate and its imperative that these restrictions are adhered to if access is to continue.

Rockfax Description
A brilliant route with exhilarating climbing. Climb up good holds and make a stiff pull to gain the easier mid-height corner-crack. From its top, make some thin moves to better holds and a steep final couple of moves to the lower-off. © Rockfax

βeta: Onsight to the new lower off, pumpy 7a. Fell trying to clip the top anchor,didn't get hand down the back of the loose block. This block is going soon, and will be well dodgy for anyone underneath. The route is brilliant still to the new LO, just one punchy move less, onsight you are going to use the death block!

βeta: Fell off between the new and the old lower off, but that’s in fact the single hardest move on the route so in my opinion stopping at the new rings is missing the point. The flake at the top is LOOSE but you can clip the anchor easily without using it . The route is 3 * all the way !!!
