Impressive! Was it worth it?

You're a better man than me if you went up that lot.

Cool thanks for sharing, I've always wondered what it looks like in there.

Nothing here looks very ladder-like, or 'Diff'!

This photo is looking up into the cave after the "ladder". The approach into the cave I agree is best described as hard very vegetated. The rock was actually lot less loose that expected but sometimes was elbows deep palming on it through grass/moss. Technical difficulties scrambling level. Just below the base of the cave there is couple okayish pegs and with a mess of crap tat attaching a thin rope with knots that runs down to the sloping shelf path. This rope is core shot and I didn't use it. You could bring some tat and trail a rope to ab off instead of downclimbing which did require some care.(especially the added pressure of hoping to make it to shop in ballahulish within the hour!) I believe there are routes up either out side of the cave which would have incredible situations but rock looked pretty chossy. Would reccomend to check it out in dry conditions after climbing on the north face and imaginging questing up here in the 1860s!
