38m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A shiny classic up a neat hanging groove above a hidden cave.
1) 4b, 10m. Climb a groove to reach a tree, step right then continue to another of those strange stances in a cave.
2) 5a, 28m. Enter the groove and balance up it to a roof, then swing right to follow cracks in a fine position. © Rockfax

βeta: Great upper groove and the crux isn't where you think it should be when you look from below.

βeta: solid HVS, hard bridging up the groove and then tricky pull over near the top, both worth 5A. Good gear though.

βeta: A super route at the top end of the grade although I have not done the route since the rockfall.

βeta: Don't know why this is HVS. The only 5a move is near the top off a good resting ledge with gear above you. A superb VS, though.

βeta: A hugh block came off the second pitch in late 2003, luck the belayer was in the cave! It might be a little harder now?
